The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge wrote a touching letter to a student who had gone to the trouble of inviting Prince George to her birthday party.
Later, the mother of the young girl tweeted the kind reply from Kensington Palace using the handle @xxAimeeRoxyxx.
Prince William and Kate graciously declined the invitation, but they were nonetheless “immensely touched” by the kind offer.
Their letter of response was included in the social media post, which has since gone viral on Twitter: “I’ve been asked to thank you on behalf of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge for your letter, in which you invite Prince George to your 6th birthday celebration. I apologize for taking so long to respond.
“Their Royal Highnesses are very appreciative of your thoughtful invitation. However, after carefully weighing the options, I am incredibly sorry that Their Royal Highnesses feel compelled to decline. I do, however, hope you had a good birthday.”
The message went on to say: “The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were deeply moved that you would take the time to write to their son, Prince George, in the manner that you did.
It was incredibly kind of you, and Their Royal Highnesses have asked me to convey their sincere gratitude and best wishes to you.
For Prince George and his siblings Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis, the next few weeks are expected to be extremely busy. They are reportedly planning to relocate to Windsor this summer.
The family’s desire to be near the Queen and Duchess Kate’s parents, Carole and Michael Middleton, who reside in Bucklebury, Berkshire, is thought to be the driving force behind the relocation.
Prince George and his siblings will have more freedom to participate in their favorite outdoor activities, such as swimming, football, and tennis, with their move to Windsor Estate from their current residence at Kensington Palace. The Cambridge children will have plenty of room to play outside and explore the surrounding gardens since it is thought that the family will reside in the four-bedroom Adelaide Cottage on the Windsor estate.
