Meghan Markle Just Sent Personal Thank You Notes to a Group of Students
When a group of students wrote to Meghan Markle for a school project, they had no idea they’d receive personal thank you notes from the 38-year-old royal. But that’s exactly what happened.
It all started last month when students at the Woodlands Community Primary School in Birkenhead wrote to the Duchess of Sussex in honor of Black History Month. The project came just a few months after Prince Harry and Markle visited the small town, which is located near Liverpool.
Yesterday, staff members posted a photo of the response they received from Markle, which included a personal letter to each child.
As part of our work on Black History Month, Y3/4 wrote to HRH the Duchess of Sussex and posted a selection. Imagine our excitement when we received personal letters back from Buckingham Palace! pic.twitter.com/maEeUga7Vw? Woodlands Community (@woodlandswirral) November 18, 2019
The letter in the photo was written by Claudia Spens, who is the head of general correspondence for the royal couple. It’s penned on official Buckingham Palace paper and reads: “I am writing to thank you for your recent letter and enclosures in connection with The Duke and Duchess of Sussex's visit to Birkenhead, Merseyside in January.
“Their Royal Highnesses very much enjoyed their visit to Birkenhead and greatly appreciated the warm welcome they received. I am so glad that the children were able to meet The Duke and Duchess of Sussex. I would be grateful if you could pass the enclosed envelopes to each child that wrote a lovely letter to Her Royal Highness.”
