Meghan Markle just mailed out formal thank you cards to everyone who sent her happy birthday wishes this year.
On August 4, 2018, the Duchess of Sussex celebrated her 37th birthday. And it was the first birthday she has celebrated as a member of the Royal family.
Considering what a wonderful person she is, and the number of fans she has, she must has received thousands of gifts and cards.
So, in return, Meghan sent a sweet postcard with a note which read: “The Duchess of Sussex is so touched you took the trouble to write as you did on the occasion of her 37th birthday. It really was most thoughtful of you and Her Royal Highness sends you her heartfelt thanks and best wishes.”
The Instagram account @loopycrown3, shared a photo of the card. The card features a sweet photo of Markle sharing a laugh with a crowd during her trip to Ireland in July.
Bradley has received many cards from the Royal family. And she explained to Hello!: “One of my favourite cards I received was from Princess Eugenie of York for her engagement. I also have two hand-signed cards from the Duchess of Cornwall. I’ve been writing to British and European royals since 2016.
“My first ever royal reply was from Her Majesty the Queen thanking me for sending my birthday wishes on her 90th birthday. Since then I have amassed a collection of nearly 70 royal replies from all over Europe.”
The royal family also showered the new royal with heartfelt messages on her big day. Buckingham Palace posted a photo of the Duchess and the Queen on Instagram and wrote, “Happy Birthday to HRH The Duchess of Sussex! #HappyBirthdayHRH.”
Clarence House shared a picture of the couple with Meghan with the caption: “Wishing HRH The Duchess of Sussex a very Happy Birthday ?.”

Charlie’s brother, Thomas van Straubenzee, is also Princess Charlotte’s godfather and was one of William’s ushers at his royal wedding back in 2011.
