Thank you so much for thinking of giving us something. We both appreciate it enormously. I hope it won’t be too long before I can bring my bride-to-be to the Scillies—perhaps next year…”

A Royal Christmas card from 1983 embossed on the front with the Prince of Wales’s feathers and Order of the Garter motto and the Spencer family arms, measuring 10.5 x 7.25 open, featuring an affixed color photo of Charles in a kilt and Diana sitting on a swing with toddler Prince William, signed and inscribed inside in fountain pen, “To you both—from Charles and” and “Diana.”
