Meghan’s sweet gift for fans

SINCE joining the British royal family earlier this year, Meghan Markle has taken all the etiquette, strict fashion rules and public appearances in her stride.

So it'll come as no surprise that the new Duchess of Sussex was flooded with mail from birthday wellwishers as she turned 37 last month … and unsurprisingly, her thoughtful thank you cards prove just how humble Meghan really is, The Sun reports.

While Meghan didn't have time to reply to each and every card personally, birthday wellwishers received a thoughtful thank you card from Kensington Palace which revealed just how "touched" Meghan was for their kind words.

The super sweet note read: "The Duchess of Sussex is so touched you took the trouble to write as you did on the occasion of her 37th birthday.

"It really was most thoughtful of you and Her Royal Highness sends you her heartfelt thanks and best wishes."

And if that's not a sign of how down-to-earth Meghan is, we don't know what is.

Meghan's father Thomas Markle claimed in a recent interview that he had sent a birthday card to his daughter to Kensington Palace, but it's unclear if he did, or if Meghan received it.

It's not uncommon for members of the British royal family to send thankyou cards to wellwishers.
