Back in June I wrote to the Duke of Edinburgh to extend my best wishes for his 95th birthday. Today, after 4 hours on the road I came home to a piece of Royal Mail. It was a reply sent on behalf of the Duke of Edinburgh.
The envelope and stationary feature the Duke of Edinburgh’s Royal Naval Plate rather than a crest or monogram. I am not sure why this is the case, but anyone who knows anything about Philip will surely know of his strong ties to the Royal Navy so I suspect that is the reason.
I had trouble getting a good clear shot of the envelope, so here is a good look at it thanks to Gert’s Royals
Here is a closer look at the Royal Naval plate with thanks to Gert’s Royals
Te letter is very simple and straightforward, it is signed by the Duke’s Assistant Equerry.
I am glad to have this to add to my collection.
