Contact with the royal family is a far-fetched dream to many. Sure, we see the royals in countless images splashed across the mags, and some might even be lucky enough to travel and catch a glimpse of them at a public event. But actually speaking to them? Well, that’s something only a lucky few are privy to — until now, that is.
It’s become apparent that there is a way to get noticed by the royal family, and it’s surprisingly easy. This revelation has royal fans scrambling for their pens and notepads. In the past, royal fans who have shared their best wishes with members of the royal family via snail mail have been known to receive a personal thank-you note from the royals themselves.
Back in May 2018 following Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s royal wedding, fans received a thank-you card inside an envelope embellished with Kensington Palace’s crest.
The note also included a message written on behalf of the newlywed couple: “The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have been overwhelmed by all the incredibly kind cards and letters they have received on the occasion of their wedding and are so touched that you took the trouble to write as you did.”
And following Meghan’s 37th birthday last year, well-wishers were delighted when another thank-you note was sent on behalf of the duchess, this time reading, “The Duchess of Sussex is so touched you took the trouble to write as you did on the occasion of her 37th birthday.”
It certainly seems to be a fail-safe way to get noticed by the royal family if you feel so inclined, so get your pens at the ready if you’re planning to send a congratulatory note when Baby Sussex arrives.
The best contact address is below:
THR Duke & Duchess of Sussex
London SW1A 1BA
And don’t be fooled by the Clarence House address. While Meghan and Harry are understood to be moving to Windsor’s Frogmore Cottage within the next few weeks, all correspondence directed at the pair will still be received and passed onto the royals.
In addition, if their past thank-you notes are anything to go by, you can guarantee there’ll be an exciting new picture to accompany the thank-you letter issued to those who wished them well following the birth of their first child.
If that’s not a perfect addition to the mantelpiece, we don’t know what is! We’ll just be over here writing our letters to the duke and duchess now.
