How cool is this?! Prince Harry and Meghan Markle showed just how much they care about their royal fans when they sent a sweet card with their joint monogram to one of their most devoted admirers on her 99th birthday.
Daphne Dunne, who greets Harry, 34, every time he’s in Australia, received the letter from the royal couple overnight after a friend sent an email to Kensington Palace about her birthday. Australia’s Today Show documented Daphne receiving the card on her special day and caught her cute reaction on camera. In the sweet video, Daphne’s face lit up after she heard Harry and Meghan’s sweet words in the card. Watch the video below!

The letter read, “Dear Daphne, My wife and I send our warmest wishes to you on the occasion of your 99th birthday on Friday. We hope you have a wonderful celebration surrounded by family and friends and that you’ve managed to escape hospital. Congratulations on reaching this important and impressive milestone before your centenary year next year. Happy birthday, Daphne. Best wishes, Harry and Meghan, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.”
Daphne’s daughter Michelle Haywood grabbed her hand after hearing the letter and said, “Isn’t it beautiful?” And Daphne replied “yeah.” Michelle still can’t believe that her mom, who wears her late husband’s military medals every time she sees Harry, received a letter from the prince. “She rang me up most excitedly to tell me that Prince Harry replied overnight and we all got goosebumps,” she said about her friend who contacted the prince. “We were just so excited!”
Daphne congratulated Meghan, 37, on her pregnancy during their most recent meet-up in Australia. “Congratulations, I think that’s marvelous,” she told the pregnant royal at the time with Harry by her side, and Meghan replied, “Hopefully next time we see you, we’ll have a little one with us!” Daphne is one lucky lady!
