Princess of Wales surprises fans with heartfelt thank you cards

Catherine, Princess of Wales, has sent thank you notes for the well-wishes she has received since she announced she was receiving cancer treatment.

The 41-year-old royal announced in a video message last month that she was undergoing chemotherapy after the disease was detected following her major abdominal surgery in January, and now members of the public have begun receiving notes expressing gratitude for their “thoughtful gestures”.

A note obtained by HELLO! Online showed the short message is on Kensington Palace-headed paper and read: “Thank you for your kind well wishes to Her Royal Highness The Princess of Wales. Your thoughtful gesture is very much appreciated.”

But in a break with royal tradition, no photograph accompanied the note, which was instead left blank on one side.

The palace typically sends out such messages on behalf of Catherine and her husband Prince William in response to cards for occasions such as their or their children’s birthdays, their wedding anniversary, and Christmas.
