The handwritten thank you cards Princess Eugenie and Jack sent to royal fans
On October 12, Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank tied the knot in St George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle.
And just shy of a month later, the newlyweds have already sent a special surprise to royal fans who sent them well-wishes for their nuptials.
One Instagram user, who describes themselves as a “devout monarchist”, posted a photo of the card they’d been sent by the couple after wishing them well on their wedding.
Fans were sent an official portrait of the 28-year-old bride and 32-year-old groom surrounded by their bridesmaids and page boys in the White Drawing Room at Windsor Castle.
In the message, Eugenie and Jack say they are “completely overwhelmed with happiness”.
Inside the card reads: “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 + Jack.”
The letter, which also features their monogram in golden letters, is signed individually by both Eugenie and Jack.
Sharing a photo of the card, the fan wrote: “A fantastic reply from HRH Princess Eugenie and Mr Jack Brooksbank thanking me for sending my good wishes for their wedding.”
Thank you cards were also sent out following Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan’s May 19 royal wedding.
Commenting on the thank you cards, etiquette expert William Hanson said: “Gratitude is dying in modern Britain, but I am so glad to see that it is alive and well in the Royal Household.”
Hanson continued, “The letters from Princess Eugenie and Mr Brooksbank are charming examples of the perfect thank you letter. They are not too short, but not too long; succinct and heartfelt."
He added, “They show that the couple has excellent manners.”
For her wedding day, Eugenie stunned in a Peter Pilotto and Christopher de Vos wedding gown.
Later in the evening, she changed into a pale pink evening gown by Zac Posen.
