It’s been over three weeks since Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank tied the royal knot on Oct. 12. Since then, the husband and wife duo has sent out their wedding thank you cards. The craziest part? The hundreds of notes were all handwritten!
Royal fan account @loopycrown3 shared photos of the gorgeous cards of gratitude on Instagram. “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,” the card said in a mesmerizing calligraphy. “We are completely overwhelmed with happiness. Eugenie + Jack.”
Royal admirer Bradley Donovan-Baird, who runs @loopycrown3, told HELLO! about his collection of royal memorandums. “I’ve been writing to British and European royals since 2016,” Bradley proudly said. “Since then, I have amassed a collection of nearly 70 royal replies from all over Europe.”
While 70 messages may sound like an incredible amount, Bradley reassures that he will never get tired of a reply from members of the British monarchy. “Of course, I still get excited every time,” he says about adding letters to his collection. “They are a wonderful thing to have. I am always very grateful to the staff who make it possible for people to receive such letters and cards.”
It’s no surprise to receive a thank you card from a royal, especially since they typically send replies to those who wish them a happy birthday or congratulations, Cosmopolitan reported. After Prince Harry, 34, and Meghan Markle, 37, wed this past spring, they sent out thank you cards featuring the two sitting on steps while showcasing their joyous smiles.
“The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have been overwhelmed by all the incredibly kinds 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,” the cards said. “It really was most thoughtful of you and greatly appreciated by Their Royal Highnesses who send you their very best wishes.”
While just the thought of receiving a thank you card from a member of the royal family is exciting enough, Eugenie and Jack took their personalization to the next level. Typically letters are typed out, such as Meghan and Harry’s wedding thank you cards, but Eugenie and Jack sent theirs handwritten. If that doesn’t raise the etiquette bar, we don’t know what does!
