Some people already had the card a few days before me, but on Saturday I finally found my card in my letterbox. A lovely thank you card from Princess Elisabeth of Belgium, the Duchess of Brabant, who on 25 October celebrated her 18th birthday. She is the first of her generation to reach this age. The Belgian royal court is rather quick in sending the card, that is folded in four parts. Two parts contain photos of Elisabeth that were released in October. The front shows Elisabeth’s monogram. And there is one more page with thanks and her name in the three languages of Belgium: Dutch, French and German. In the middle is Elisabeth’s signature.
I think it is a lovely addition to my collection of royal mail.
