Children at a Fylde primary school received a very special delivery this week – a personalised card from the Royal Family.
The reception and Year One class, Harriers class, at Bryning with Warton St Paul’s Primary School made and sent a special congratulations card to Prince William and his wife Catherine, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, following the christening of their son, Prince George.
The tot, third-in-line to the throne, was christened at The Chapel Royal, St James’s Palace, on October 23, in a ceremony which was celebrated worldwide.
So given the huge level of interest, it came as a pleasant surprise at the school on Lytham Road, Warton, when they received an envelope sporting a Buckingham Palace postmark and a ‘W’ with a crown on the reverse.
Teacher Liz Towers said the children were thrilled when the card arrived
Pupil Connor Newby, five, said: “We were excited to see what the postman had brought for us.”
The card inside included a photo card of the happy family and a personalised message to the pupils.
It read: “The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge thank everyone in Harriers Class for taking the trouble to send such a wonderful card.
“It really was most thoughtful of you and their royal highnesses send you all their warmest thanks and best wishes.”
Ms Towers added: “We didn’t expect a response. It was good to be acknowledged by such famous people.
“We try to do things to share a smile and get children thinking about other people.”
The card now has pride of place in the classroom.
Natasha Lynch, five, said: “Baby George’s card is cute.”
