Yesterday, was the date we recommended for you to mail out your Christmas letters and cards to the Royals. If you haven't gotten all your letters/cards out, don't worry. As long as you get it out in the next week or so, it may not arrive by Christmas, but you should be good.
We picked December 5th to try to make sure that all of you, from all over the world, could send your letter by standard mail and get it there by Christmas (hopefully). Some of you, especially those in Western or Central Europe have a little longer. But of course the later you write, the slower the mail is, the more letters/cards they will have stacked in their office.... So get it out as soon as possible as things get very busy this season!
You shouldn't expect to get all your replies in December. I usually get 1 or 2 replies in December, then everything else arrives in January or February.
Now to the reply:
Today, my first Royal Christmas reply came! This was a pretty quick reply. It helps that I wrote early when they weren't swamped with Christmas Wishes. Don't expect this good luck, even if you wrote to Liechtenstein around the same time as me. Remember it takes a while for them to reply to everyone, so you could get your's weeks apart from someone else.
I had sent my letter to Hereditary Prince Alois and Hereditary Princess Sophie of Liechtenstein on November 20th, so it took just over 2 weeks to get a reply. It is very lovely. The card is the same style as one I received for Princess Sophie's Birthday. But obviously a different typed message.
The message is in German, Liechtenstein's official languages. It translates to: "Blessed Christmas and All the Best in the New Year." The card is signed by Sophie and Alois. It looks like a secretary filled in the "Dear Miss Daly,".
We will have all of Christmas replies linked here, when they arrive.
