From Buckingham Palace, the newlywed royal couple sends heartfelt thanks for a wedding gift
Description  

Very nice TLS signed “Yours most sincerely, Charles and Diana,” with Charles’s name in his own hand and the remainder written by Diana, one page, 7.5 x 11.75, Buckingham Palace letterhead, October 7, 1981. Letter to Miss Harding. In full: “We would like to thank you very much indeed for your most kind contribution to the wedding present which the Duchy has given us. We really are delighted with the mahogany library table which will look splendid in our home at Highgrove and is exactly the right period for the house. We were also most touched to receive the balance of the gift in the form of a cheque with which we shall probably buy some more furniture. As you can well imagine, with two houses to equip from scratch we have quite a difficult task ahead of us! We have been completely overwhelmed by the kindness and generosity which so many people have shown to us, but, as you well know we have a very special affection for the Duchy and all those who live and work in it and we therefore particularly appreciate your gift. We look forward very much to visiting the Duchy together in the future.” Accompanied by the original mailing envelope. In fine condition. The fabled royal wedding took place at St. Paul’s Cathedral on July 29, 1981, before an invited congregation of 3,500 and an estimated worldwide television audience of 750 million. A highly desirable and personal souvenir of one of the most storied public marriages in modern history. Pre-certified John Reznikoff/PSA/DNA and RR Auction COA.
