This is lovely.

Meghan Markle has always championed the art of letter writing, even working as a freelance calligrapher to pay her way before landing her big break in Suits.

In fact, many of her touching hand written notes have gone on to make viral news, from the sweet thank you note she sent the editor of InStyle eight years ago, to the heartbreaking letter that she wrote her father, Thomas Markle, after her wedding.

This week the letters that emerged however might just be the most wholesome from the Duchess of Sussex yet.

The recipients? Every student in Dolphins class of a Stratford-Upon-Avon school.

Yes, really.

One teacher, Miss Davis, reportedly taught her class the importance of letter writing when she instructed each student to write a letter to the new Duke and Duchess of Sussex, congratulating them on their future arrival, with a royal baby due any day now.


She wasn’t expecting their response however, with the surprised school teacher taking to social media to share the royal post she received this week - a letter of thanks from the royal couple, accompanied by personalised individual letters from the Duke and Duchess for every student in the class.

‘The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have asked me to thank you for your very kind letter enclosing the letters from the children in Dolphins Class,’ the letter addressed to Miss Davis wrote.

‘Their Royal Highnesses were immensely touched that you took the trouble to write, as well as organise the children to write such lovely letters. Please find enclosed individual replies for each child and I would be most grateful if you could distribute them on my behalf.’

The letter concluded: ‘This letter comes with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's warmest thanks and very best wishes.’

Yet more proof that these two will make incredible parents.
