Primary school kids were delighted after they sent a cut out of their favourite book character to the Palace – and received a touching response from PRINCE HARRY.
The boys and girls of Leybourne School sent their class mascot, Flat Stanley, to the Royal household.
But the kids at the Kent school were thrilled to receive a letter back from the recently-engaged prince, who detailed all the beloved children’s character’s adventures.
The note said Flat Stanley he stayed at Kensington Palace and met both the newly engaged Prince as well as the Duke of Cambridge.
During his stay earlier this month the hand sized character played with Prince George and Princess Charlotte as well as their dog Lupo, according to a letter from Kensington Palace.
Flat Stanley is a fictional boy who travels the world after a bulletin board fell on him and left him an inch thick.
The letter from Claudia Spens, head of correspondence at the palace, said: “It was so kind of you to take the trouble to write as you did.
“His Royal Highness has taken care of Flat Stanley and has now asked me to return him to you.
“I thought you might be interested to learn a bit about Flat Stanley’s visit to London.
“Flat Stanley stayed at Kensington Palace, where Prince Harry lives when he is in London.
“Kensington Palace is not far from Buckingham Palace where His Royal Highness’s Grandparents, The Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh, live.
“Whilst Flat Stanley was staying with Prince Harry, he got the chance to visit His Royal Highness’s brother, The Duke of Cambridge and even got to play with Prince George, Princess Charlotte and their pet dog Lupo too.
“Prince Harry was immensely touched that you should take the trouble to write as you did.
“It really was most thoughtful of you and His Royal Highness has asked me to send you all his warmest thanks and best wishes.”
Year two pupils at the Leybourne School in West Malling, Kent, has sent the character around the world to see where he may end up.
Previously the paper character has been photographed visiting the Eiffel Tower in Paris, has met Sir Michael Gambon and former prima ballerina and now Strictly Come Dancing judge Darcey Bussell.
