    1. :( Sorry to hear you haven't gotten your reply yet. It is a little worrying because I know they've already sent out some replies for her Birthday. & then sent replies out for William's birthday. But I have seen people write for the same thing and get replies months apart. So there is still a chance.

      I wrote a letter for The Cambridges 5th Wedding Anniversary & Princess Charlotte's 1st Birthday in one letter. And I got a reply that was for the Cambridge's 5th Wedding Anniversary. But didn't get anything for Princess Charlotte's 1st Birthday.

    1. No need to send a stamp, they take care of everything.

    1. We have a lot of "Examples" on the page "How to Format Your Letter?". These letters all come for royals, and you can get a sense of how to do things from that.

      But one of the main things it shows is everyone does things differently. There is no one right way, and you can't really go wrong.

  4. Congratulations for your beautiful website! Unfortunately my Christmas reply from The Cambridges didn't arrive and I wanted to ask you if you have any idea of a way to get a card with this years Christmas photo! Is there any other holiday to wish them or could I ask in any way for this particular photo?
    Thank you in advance!!!

    1. I don't know how long they keep photos around for. They should have a family photo that they can send in reply, I just don't know if it is the Christmas photo. But it likely is since that is kind of the last family photos that's been released. You could just straight up ask for a family photo of the Cambridges, and see what you get.

      Prince William's birthday is in a few days and Prince George's birthday is next months so you could write for that. They will send you a photo in reply for that, but it won't be the Christmas photo.

  5. Can we ask the Duchess of Cambridge to sign the reply letter?
    I want to say that I love and I support her programs about mental health, How should I say that?

    1. Kate and the other Royals do not sign things. If they did it for you, they would have to do it with everyone.

      You could say something like, "I really love and support the work you are doing with mental health." Then go into some specific things you find most meaningful to you.

    1. No. The Royals get to much mail (sometimes a hundred or more letters a day) to read them all. They are given a selection to read.

    4. The Royals get hundred's of letters, most are just read by staff, only some will get passed on to the royals to read.
      There is no handwritten letter rule. There isn't anything you can do to automatically get your letter read by a Royal.
      But good letters have a point; they are specific and personal.
