The Duke and Duchess of Sussex want to ensure that their well-wishers do not get the impression they had been forgotten about and offers an apology for the delay.


Royal couple Meghan and Prince Harry got ‘overwhelmed’ by cards and letters shortly after their marriage, and now months down the line replies are still being sent.

Head of the Correspondence Section at Clarence House, Claudia Spens, sent the royal fans a note explaining the delay and not forgetting to thank those who placed a kind donation to one of the royal couple’s selected charities.


The first part of the letter read:

“The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have asked me to thank you for your letter of 24th May and I must apologize for the delay in responding to you. As I am sure you can imagine, this has been a particularly busy time for this office and we have, consequently, been unable to reply as quickly as we should have liked to.”


The message then went on to say:

“It was so kind of you to take the trouble to write as you did and Their Royal Highnesses were immensely touched by your generous words of support. The Duke and Duchess were heartened to learn of the charitable donation you made to the Myna Mahila Foundation in their honor; this was most thoughtful and commendable of you and Their Royal Highnesses are incredibly grateful.”

Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank tied the knot less than a month ago, but have already sent out their thank you cards to all who congratulated them on their union.

The couple used elegant stationery with a printed gold monogram, a cursive ‘EJ’ for their initials on the top of the page. Princess Eugenie replied personally to each with a handwritten note that read:

“Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making our wedding so special and for thinking of us as we start our married life. We are completely overwhelmed with happiness. Eugenie and Jack.”


Princess Eugenie got spotted at a night out with older sister Beatrice for the first time since her wedding. They joined up at the Day Of The Dead party after Beatrice attended the star-studded Global Gala beforehand.

Husband Jack is a brand ambassador for the tequila brand Casamigos and since the party was co-hosted by the brand the two sisters wanted to show their support. The princess wore a black dress featuring lace detail with a matching double-breasted coat and ankle boots.
