The Duchess of Sussex has opted for a down-to-earth option for her first thank-you note as a real one, sending a postcard to the fans who wanted her on her 37th birthday.
The missive was shared on Instagram by the real loopycrown3 fan and unusually shows a sincere snap of the Duchess greeting royal fans during a walk around her royal visit to Ireland this year.
Former Suits star, Meghan, can be seen beaming in the picture, taken at Trinity College in Dublin, while accepting a bouquet of flowers presented by gold lovers.
Meanwhile, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have also been sending cards to thank those who wished Prince George well on his birthday in July.
The couple chose the potrait of the young man's official birthday for the card, showing the little prince captured by Matt Porteus on the day of the baptism of his brother Prince Louis.
Meghan has broken with tradition by sending a postcard with a frank shot of a royal walk in Dublin in July 2018 to thank the people who wished her the best on her 37th birthday.

It is an example of how real thank-you letters often have a posed image, which shows that Meghan has broken with tradition with a more relaxed approach.
However, the message inside was typical of real thank-you cards, saying: "The Duchess of Sussex is so moved that you took the trouble to write as you did on the occasion of her 27th birthday.
"He really was very considerate to you and His Royal Highness to feel his sincere thanks and best wishes."
It is identical to the message presented by the letters of thanks from the Duchess of Cambridge, although Meghan replaced it with "sincere" thanks for "hotter".
Adding your own stamp! Meghan's message is identical to that used by Charles, Camilla, William and Kate, although she expressed "more heartfelt" than "warm" wishes.
Kate and William have sent a thank-you card to the royal fans who wished Prince George a happy fifth birthday in July of this year.
Kate uses almost the same message as Meghan for the thank-you cards sent to traffickers
The difference indicates that the duchess may have wanted to add her own stamp in the correspondence to the royal admirers.
Last year, it was revealed how William and Kate send the same "warmest thanks and best wishes" to the advertisers almost every time they send a thank you card.
The message on their cards is also exactly the same as that used by Prince Charles and Camilla.
Kate and William also sent almost identical thank-you cards to the people who wished them the best on their wedding anniversary in 2017 and 2018, presenting the same image of the couple during their journey through the Himalayas to the Tiger Nest monastery in Bhutan.
