Theis reply was quite a surprise. I was a bit confused when I saw the envelope. It was obviously from the UK, but it doesn't have the typical marking of a royal letter. It is just a simple envelope with a stamp of the Queen, a handwritten address, and nothing on the back. I wondered who it could be from.
Given that the letter isn't stamped with the Royal's PPI (Printed Postage Impression), I knew it couldn't be one of the Royal Households. The last time I received an envelope like this it was from a Foreign Royal living in the UK.
To my surprise, the reply is from Zara Tindall for the letter I sent her & Mike congratulating them on their pregnancy. When I wrote to them in January, I wasn't expecting a reply. I don't think I've ever seen a reply from Zara before. I wasn't even entirely sure Princess Anne's office passed on letters to her children. I have written to Zara twice before for her previous pregnancy announcement, and miscarriage.
The reply is a simple letter, written by Kate Bowen, Zara's Personal Assistant. The letter says:
Thank you for your letter to Mr and Mrs Tindall with your kind congratulations. They both were very touched by your letter.
PA to Zara Tindall
