See Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's Engagement Thank-you Card
Thousands have been sent around the world. Will you get one?
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have royally good manners.
The couple, who were inundated with thousands of notes and cards congratulating them on their engagement last November, have sent thank you notes from Kensington Palace to well-wishers around the world saying they have been "incredibly touched" by the outpouring of affection they have received.
Harry and Meghan chose to send a photo taken during their official photocall in the Sunken Garden at Kensington Palace, a favorite spot of Harry's late mother, Princess Diana. The shot shows the couple gazing lovingly at each other with Meghan holding on to Harry's arm with the prince standing with one arm tucked into his jacket.
The message on the back of the card reads: "Prince Harry and Ms. Meghan Markle were incredibly touched that you took the trouble to write as you did in connection to their forthcoming wedding. It was really was most thoughtful of you and greatly appreciated. His Royal Highness and Ms. Markle send you their warmest thanks and very best wishes."
Delighted fans who received the cards have been posting them on social media. One lucky recipient, Lauren Parkinson, shared hers on her Instagram account, @Parkysprincess, and even included instructions on how other royal watchers can get their own keepsake commemorating the royal engagement.
The couple will marry on May 19 at St. George's Chapel at Windsor after dating for sixteen months. The church holds 800 people although Harry and Meghan are said to be planning an "intimate" affair. Buckingham Palace has confirmed the royal family will pay for the wedding and the reception. Meghan, who attended catholic school as a child but was raised protestant, will be baptized and confirmed before the wedding.
