Kate Middleton Pens Sweet Letter to Young British Boy (& Our Jealousy Meter Is Through the Roof)

An English boy named Tony Hudgell just received a personalized letter from Kate Middleton, and we couldn’t be any more jealous.

The Duchess of Cambridge, 38, recently penned a note to the young lad, who raised a noteworthy amount of money for the Evelina London Children’s Hospital.

It all started when Hudgell organized a charity walk with proceeds benefiting the hospital. Since he greatly surpassed his initial goal, Middleton sent a thank-you letter to the young boy, who immediately shared proof on Instagram.

It read: “Dear Tony, I wanted to send my congratulations following your amazing fundraising efforts for Evelina London Children's Hospital. It was wonderful to hear how you were inspired by Captain Sir Tom Moore’s story to carry out your own walk. I am very impressed that you carried on even after reaching your target of 10km!”

Middleton continued, “I know that your efforts have been hugely appreciated by Evelina, and we are all so proud of what you have achieved. I hope that you manage to have a very well deserved rest before starting on your next adventure—whatever that may be! Catherine.”

We’re not totally surprised by the response, since Middleton has been a royal patron of the Evelina London Children’s Hospital since 2018. Still, the fact that she went out of her way to personally congratulate a young boy speaks volumes about her future role as Queen Consort.
