After months of speculation—some of which
turned out to be creepily accurate—Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have officially announced
that they’re expecting their first child together.
Obviously, congratulations are in order, so pour yourself a glass of champagne, place
bets on what the royal baby’s name is going to be, and—if you’re SUPER excited and are
having trouble containing your enthusiasm—drop Meghan and Harry a letter. You can write a
note to the parents-to-be. Here’s how. It is possible for you to contact the Duke and Duchess of Sussex directly. All you have
to do is pop a letter in the mail with the following address:
Their Royal Highnesses the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.
Clarence House. London SW1A 1BA.
United Kingdom. While there’s no way to confirm that you will
definitely get a letter back from Megs and Harry, you should still note your return address
because remember: These two sent thank-you notes to well-wishers after their royal wedding!
They love writing people back! Look to the Queen for this one! The official royal family website has a handy guide for
how you can contact Her Majesty, and—head’s up—it’s SUPER formal.
When writing to the Queen, the guidelines suggest you start your letter with “Madam”
and close it with an official “I have the honour to be, Madam, Your Majesty’s humble
and obedient servant.” Obviously, you are not Meghan and Harry’s
humble and obedient servant, so maybe start with letter with “Sir and Madam” and end it
with, “Sincerely, [your name].” But keep in mind that the royal family website
says “you should feel free to write in whatever style you feel comfortable,” so if you want
your letter to say “YO MEGHAN AND HARRY CONGRATS LOL,” that’s fine, too.
