The heartwarming "thank you" photo Prince William and Kate sent to fans

The heartwarming "thank you" photo Prince William and Kate sent to fans

Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge have shown their appreciation to their loving supporters with a beautiful photograph of Kate and Prince Louis at his christening.

Kate and William have slowly been responding to every letter they have received after the birth of their third child who was born six months ago.

The "thank you" package features a photo of the Duchess and Prince Louis both beaming with joy and was taken by photographer Matt Porteous in the gardens of Clarence House on the day of Louis’ christening, which took place in July.

Along with the photo came a small card acknowledging the delayed response, as the Duke and Duchess apologised for taking the time to respond due to the “enormous volume” of letters received.

The token of appreciation was shared on social media by a royal fan who wrote to the pair back in July.

The card inside the envelope reads: “The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were touched that you took the trouble to write on the occasion of the baptism of their son, Prince Louis.

“Their Royal Highnesses are so grateful for all the wonderful messages they have received and send you their warmest thanks and best wishes”.

The separate apology card said: “The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge hope you will understand that, due to the enormous volume of correspondence received in the last few months, it has not been possible to reply to you all until now”.

The photograph of Kate and Louis was loved by the couple so much that they made the decision to release it to the public through the Kensington Palace Instagram account.

The photo featured the caption: “The Duke and Duchess hope that everyone enjoys this lovely photograph of Prince Louis as much as they do.”
