Princess Charlotte of Cambridge - Birthday Reply (2018)

A lovely reply arrived today from the UK. I had written to the Cambridges last month to wish Princess Charlotte a wonderful 3rd birthday.

The envelope is the usual, Postmark from the Court Post Office at Buckingham Palace on the front.

And the Black Crown with Kensington Palace on the back, to mark this mail is from the Cambridges/Sussexs.

The reply is their typical postcard size photo, with typed message on the back. The photo is from Princess Charlotte's 1st day of nursery school back in January. The photo was taken by Duchess Kate at Kensington Palace.

The message on the back is similar to past years. You will notice a little mistake in the last line "who you send their best wishes." It should read "who send you their best wishes."

I was a little surprised by how quickly the Correspondence Section at Clarence House responded given how much mail they have received in the last month.

  1. Hello, Gert! I started sending cards, later this year but by the time I started it was June so I never sent a letter for Princess Charlotte's birthday. I really love this photo though, and would love a reply, so do you have any suggestions on a subject for a letter I could send to try to get this photo? Thank you so much!

    1. If you want a photo of Princess Charlotte I would just ask for one.
