I'm having just one of the children as a bridesmaid, Clementine Hambro. Over 23,000 letters have arrived here and as you can imagine I'm being kept extremely busy with my other half away! I just wanted you to know Margaret how much your letter meant. Take care and much love. Miss Diana x - in original envelope

Description: HRH Diana, Princess of Wales - handwritten two page letter to Margaret Hodge dated September 14th 1981 written on Princess of Wales crested notepaper:- Dearest Margaret, I have just got your letter this morning and am really thrilled with the photographs - goodness, how smart you all looked at my - sorry our nuptials! How lovely it was being able to speak to you - I never thought you'd write as quickly! I went and saw Highgrove a couple of weeks ago to put pressure on basically to see it finished by the end of October! It honestly won't look smart. Just a cosy nest for Mr & Mrs Wales to roost with bright colours of course! Its heavenly up here, just having the opportunity to do what you like and walk for miles - I've vanished down many a hole - the husband having not realised - typical. We are touring Wales for three days at the end of next month, which will be quite something. I only hope I can survive it! I expect the sooner I can get used to it, the better. If I ever have the opportunity to come to YE (Young England Kindergarden) I try my hardest to as I can think of nothing nicer -. I ought to finish now and give a hug to my other half! This comes with endless love and affection from your devoted, Miss Diana x - with original envelope

Lot 5: HRH Diana, Princess of Wales - handwritten two

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: HRH Diana, Princess of Wales - handwritten two page letter to Margaret Hodge dated September 3rd 1982 written on Kensington Palace notepaper with crowned CD crest:- Dearest Margaret, Please forgive the lateness of this letter but due to the avalanche of mail, I have only just received your card and letter! The reaction to William and my birthday has been incredibly heartwarming and certainly kept me busy with pen to paper! William has brought such happiness to us and we are constantly found looking besotted at this small package, making strange gaga noises! I was enormously touched that you remembered my birthday, but its typical of Margaret not to forget something that's special to me. At the first opportunity that comes, I will sneak William out, so that you can have a viewing at YE (Young England Kindergarden). I am terribly sorry about appearing so rude but hopefully you'll understand this delay. With much love and endless thanks, Diana - in original envelope
