Cheeky! Prince Harry pens hilarious note to Wimbledon wheelchair champion Dylan Alcott

Cheeky! Prince Harry pens hilarious note to Wimbledon wheelchair champion Dylan Alcott

Wheelchair tennis champion Dylan Alcott received a nice surprise in the mail, as he took to Twitter to show off a cheeky letter from none other than Prince Harry himself.

The royal heaped praise on Alcott, commending him for his Wimbledon win and most popular new talent at the Logies.

He also appreciated him for his work “raising awareness and changing perceptions of disability”.

But while the top half of the note was quite formal, it was the PS that had fans chuckling, as Harry hilariously asked about Alcott’s underwear situation.

The letter reads: “Dear Dylan,

I wanted to pass on my congratulations for your recent win at Wimbledon and your most popular new talent award!

Thank you for the special contribution that you made to sharing the stories of wounded, injured and sick servicemen and women on the Invictus Games Today show.

Your achievements are extraordinary, and the impact you have had in raising awareness and changing perceptions of disability is really inspiring.

I wish you the very best of luck for the future, on-air and on-court!

All the best, Harry

PS – I’m wondering if you wore your Invictus Games budgie smugglers on the big night to accept it? Mine have come in handy in this recent UK heatwave!”

The 28-year-old won the Wimbledon title in mid-July for his ninth wheelchair Grand Slam title, including third straight this year as he nears a calendar Grand Slam.
