Great Britain
Royal Christmas Cards
1992 Pair of Christmas and New Year folded cards with the crests of the Prince and Princess of Wales on the outer cover, and a sepia photograph of young Princes William and Harry laid down within. The printed greeting wishes the recipient a "very Happy Christmas and New Year 1992". One card dedicated "Mrs Marrington, from Charles", the other "Fay & Steve, love from us all, Diana".
It is not uncommon for members of the family to individually send their own signed cards but this card was sent at the time of the well publicised marital troubles of the Prince and Princess of Wales, and they clearly chose to photograph their sons only. Their separation was announced in December 1992.
A fascinating pair of Charles and Diana hand signed cards (205x150mm)
