It’s with a heavy heart that we remember the warm and wonderful Princess Diana, not to mention her huge beaming smile whenever she was with her two boys Prince William and Prince Harry.
Now a letter written by Diana and signed by the two princes reveal just how wonderful a life she created for her two sons, the devoted mom she was and the special moments she shared with them.
The note was handwritten by the princess herself in June 1989 thanking the team from Scotland yard for a special motorcycle display for William’s 7th birthday.
Addressed to Sergeant George Plumb the letter of thanks was written on official Kensington Palace letter-headed paper and is even signed by William and Harry, who was 5 at the time.
“Dear Sgt Plumb, It was so very kind of you and your team to have come here today on William’s birthday,” Diana writes in the letter. “I cannot begin to tell you what pleasure the display gave to all those little people and their mothers!
“I know how particularly busy you all are at the moment, so it meant even more to us that you and the motorbike boys were able to take part in the birthday celebrations! This comes with our warmest possible thanks.
“Yours sincerely Diana, William, Harry.”
A second letter sent from St.James’s Palace by Diana’s Lady-in-Waiting, Ann Beckwith-Smith, to Chief Superintendent Wigglesworth also thanks the officers for their kindness on William’s birthday.
“The Princess of Wales was enormously grateful to Sgt. Plumb and his team for ensuring that Prince William’s seventh birthday was such a very special occasion and the display was enjoyed by grown-ups and children alike,” she wrote.
“Her Royal Highness was particularly grateful to the ‘team’ for being able to fit this in on a day already full of official engagements, which was not helped by the rail, underground and bus strike. It was greatly appreciated and I would be grateful if special thanks could be passed to all concerned, but especially Sgt. Plumb.”
The letters are being auctioned online by William George & Co alongside a Buckingham Palace envelope addressed to “Sgt George Plumb Special Escort Group” in Diana’s handwriting with bids set to end on April 23.
Our hearts go out to her sons who lost their wonderful mother, but it’s clear their love and light live on in them as they raise their own family.
Please share with all the royal fans you know.
