Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall send lovely thank you note to fans

Prince Charles, Duchess of Cornwall

Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall celebrated their 14th wedding anniversary on April 8th.

Following their celebrations, the royal couple took the time to thank all their fans and well-wishers who sent letters. In response to the kind words, they received a lovely thank you letter which was penned by Claudia Spens, the head of the Correspondence Section at Clarence House.

An example of the letter was shared on the Instagram account Crown Replies, which was set up to document as many official royal letters as possible. So far they have received an impressive amount of responses, including letters from the Sussex and Cambridge households. Such a lovely idea!

The letter read as follows

'The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall have asked me to thank you for your recent letters and message which you so kindly on the occasion of their 14th wedding anniversary.

'Their Royal Highnesses are grateful to you for taking the trouble to write as you did, they were touched by your kind words of support.'

Many royal fans love keepsakes, which is why Ms. Spens included a recent photograph of the happy couple.

'The Prince of Wales was particularly touched by your kind message of congratulations which you sent on the 50th Anniversary of his Investiture. It was really most thoughtful of you and greatly appreciated. I have enclosed a picture of His Royal Highness and The Duchess of Cornwall that I hope you will like to have.'

The letter concluded with a kind and thoughtful sign off on behalf of the Prince and Duchess.

'This letter comes with The Prince of Wales and Her Royal Highness's warmest thanks and very best wishes. Yours sincerely, Claudia Spens.'

We can imagine that the royal family receive a lot of letters, so it really is lovely to see them and their correspondents taking the time to reply to their fans.

Have you ever received a royal reply? We’d love to know!
