Today, as many people - ourselves included - are obliged to stay at home, Royal Mail plays an absolutely vital role in keeping family and friends in touch with one another. For that, we can only say how deeply grateful we are and send you our kindest wishes.

The letter was collected by Postman Neil, who has been serving as a postman for 36 years.

The Prince also recorded a spoken reading of the letter for broadcast on Royal Mail’s internal radio stations.
