Princess Anne just broke her silence following the tragic death of her father, Prince Philip.

Here’s what you need to know: Princess Anne recently mailed out personalized cards to everyone who sent well wishes in light of her dad’s funeral. A photo of the note was posted on Instagram by @ingesmailbox, which was re-shared on Twitter by @The_QVDS. (Basically, the modern-day version of the game “Telephone.”)

The card has a thick black border, along with Princess Anne’s official monogram at the top of the stationary, which features a crown hovering over the letter “A.” The message reads, “The Princess Royal thanks you for your kind thoughts and sends you best wishes for the future.”

This is the first time Princess Anne has reached out to the public following the death of Prince Philip. The funeral took place at St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle. As the only daughter of Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip, Princess Anne held a special place during the procession. While it is tradition for only men to take part, Princess Anne was at the front of the group. She walked next to her brother, Prince Charles, who followed closely behind the Land Rover hearse.

Other procession participants included Prince William, Prince Harry, Prince Edward, Prince Andrew, Vice Admiral Sir Tim Lawrence (Princess Anne’s husband) and the Earl of Snowdon (son of the late Princess Margaret).

Sending big hugs to Princess Anne, along with the rest of the royal family.
