Her comments came from a personalized letter from the Queen Consort, 75, posted to Instagram by a royal fan. The note was in a response to a card the fan had sent wishing the royal couple a happy anniversary.

The first photo showed the front of the card, which featured a shot of the couple taken in 2022 during a visit to Colchester. Inside, there was a personalized message from Bowles, who wrote: “Thank you for your thoughtful message for our 18th Wedding Anniversary. It is hard to believe how quickly time has flown by...!”

Bowles concluded the message with “Camilla R.” The “R” stands for “Regina,” which is Latin for “Queen.” Queen Elizabeth used the same sign-off prior to her passing in September 2022.

Another royal fan received a similar response to the one shown above as seen on Instagram. In fact, the message was nearly identical. The caption read, “After a stressful few days at work, receiving this response today put a massive smile on my face.” It continued, “A personalized thank you card from Queen Camilla for the warm wishes sent for Their Majesties 18th wedding anniversary [heart-eye emoji].”

Back in 2005, King Charles, 74, exchanged vows with Bowles in a civil ceremony at Windsor Guildhall. Shortly after, the pair hosted a service of prayer at St. George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle.

Happy anniversary, you two.
