Prince Charles & Duchess Camilla - Christmas Reply (2020)

This reply arrived in February. I had written to Prince Charles & Duchess Camilla to wish them a Merry Christmas.  

The envelope is the usual from the British Royals with the postmark from the court post office at Buckingham Palace. 

The back of the envelope features the Prince of Wales feathers. For joint replies from a couple, the British Royals usually use the stationary of the more senior/blood royal. 

Inside is a letter from Claudia Spens, head of the Correspondence Section at Clarence House. 

The letter says: 
Dear Miss Daly, 

The Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall have asked me to thank you for your letter of 22nd December.  
It was most kind of you to write as you did, particularly with such supportive words for the work undertaken by Their Royal Highnesses throughout the Coronavirus pandemic. 

The Prince of Wales was touched by your kind message of congratulations, which you have sent on the 10th anniversary of the Campaign for Wool. 

Their Royal Highnesses greatly appreciated your thoughtful Christmas greetings and they have asked me to send you their warmest thanks and very best wishes for the new year. 

Yours sincerely, 
Claudia Spens
