The Special Way William And Catherine Repay Their Well-Wishers

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have long cultivated a reputation for being among the nicest, and most approachable, members of the royal family. As Woman and Home reported earlier this year, fans dubbed the beloved couple "generous" and "inclusive" for making a point of ensuring their children feel comfortable with their official duties. 

"I love how Kate and William are slowly starting to introduce the children into public engagements, but noticeably just fun things at the moment, where they can be relaxed, and enjoy themselves," wrote one Instagram commenter. As another gushed, "Incredible parenting — teaching duty, service but above all, how to love others." 

Notably, Prince William and Catherine Middleton also intend to gradually be addressed by their first names only, rather than their official titles, in an attempt to modernize the monarchy. A source explained to The Mirror, "They want to be more approachable, less formal, less stuffy and break away with a lot of the tradition." And, when it comes to thanking fans for their support, the Cambridges take a more personal approach too. 

One lucky fan received a personalized note from them

Princess Charlotte just celebrated her seventh birthday, and the little girl received well wishes from all over the world. Proud parents Prince William and Catherine Middleton, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, obviously haven't got the time to respond to every single one, but a lucky fan did receive a personal thank you note from the couple. According to People, royal watcher @KatsRoyalLetters shared the sweet letter she got from Kensington Palace, alongside one of Charlotte's birthday portraits, which were captured by her mother.

The photo shows the little girl smiling in a field of bluebells, which is located close to the family's country pile, Anmer Hall. "Thank you for the kind birthday message which you sent for Princess Charlotte's seventh birthday," it read. "Princess Charlotte had a lovely day and your message was greatly appreciated by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge who send you their very best wishes." 

Fans couldn't get enough of the sweet moment shared between William and Charlotte at the recent Commonwealth Games, and she was the center of attention again for her "extra special" birthday, per Us Weekly. The mini royal enjoyed two parties and was even gifted a pony — every little girl's dream — for her big day. She also, naturally, took the day off from school as an extra treat.

The Cambridge family is preparing for a big move

Kate and William's reported move to Windsor has been whispered about for months, but it seems to finally be in the offing. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have been living in a chic apartment at Kensington Palace for years, but they've always made their desire to live in the country clear. As an insider told Us Weekly, the couple will have the best of both worlds in Windsor since "they're only 20 miles from Central London and Buckingham Palace and it's a beautiful environment that's steeped in history and such a special location to call home."

The Cambridges are downsizing for sure, since Adelaide Cottage, which is located on the queen's estate, is significantly smaller than their palatial pad in London. Behavioral expert Darren Staton asserted to Hello! Magazine that the move demonstrates how Prince William and Catherine Middleton "want to live as much a normal life as humanly possible for their family." Moreover, although the move necessitates giving up their full-time nanny, per The Telegraph (via Elle), it's "consistent with the core values and beliefs the royal couple have, as well as their characters."

In fact, certain commentators argued William and Catherine's move to Windsor breaks a palace promise. Evidently, though, the couple is going to do what's right for their family above all else.
