Prince Edward & Countess Sophie - Christmas Reply (2017)

Today's reply was a bit of a suprise. It is from Prince Edward & Countess Sophie (AKA the Earl and Countess of Wessex). They don't very often reply to letters, so this is a nice treat. This is only the 2nd reply I've gotten from them over the years.

I wrote to the family in December to wish them a very merry Christmas. The front of the envelope is the ususal from the Wessexs.

It looks different from most of the other Envelopes from the British Royals. This is mainly becuase it is not processed through the Court Post Office at Buckingham Palace, so it doesn't have that postmark and stamp. The Wessex's home and office is at Bagshot Park, which is a little over an hour from London and 25 mins from Windsor Castle.

The letter is written by Mr. Matthew Magee, the couple's assistant private secretary. At the top of the page is the couple's combined coat of arms.
