Everything RoyalCorrespondence, Christmas Cards, Photographs & Gifts from The Royal Family,
HRH Prince Charles and HRH Diana, Princess of Wales
His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales & Diana, Princess of Wales
I have amassed a large collection of royal correspondence, photographs,Christmas cards and gifts from the British royal family during the last twenty years. The largest part of the collection is from HRH Prince Charles and HRH Diana, Princess of Wales. Through their letters, cards and photographs, we follow their lives from the day of their engagement & wedding in 1981 until their 1992 divorce and finally to Diana’s untimely death in 1997. These letters also give an insight to the man „who will be King“.
All history is recorded by writings, photographs and letters as far back as the pyramids in Egypt. We learn how a people came to be, how they lived and sadly, how they perished. The letters below are a rare and valuable part of history. I have purposely deleted all salutations and greetings on letters and gifts to protect one’s privacy.
It is astonishing Diana, Princess of Wales, more than five years after her death is still the most famous and most wirtten about royal. There are more books written on Diana than any other royal in history. Her drawing power seems to grow with each passing year! Press coverage of Diana surpasses that of Her Majesty and Prince Charles.
The letters have never been published. A line from a letter may have been printed with my permission for various newspapers articles. No entire letter has been read or printed. Alicia Carroll 1/11/2003
Do research before buying signed letters, Christmas cards and photographs. Many items being offered on the Internet by „dealers“ and on „auction sites“ are described as original signatures when , in fact, they are auto pen. A personal greeting does not make the signature authentic. The royal family sends thousands of letters, cards and photographs each year. They are given typed letters, Christmas cards and photographs already auto penned. They add the personal greeting. A Certificate of Authenticity can be made and printed by anyone! Check the seller or companies credentials.
Item 3000- Here is a wonderful collection of RARE Halcyon Days boxes from HRH The Prince of Wales. Specially commissioned Halcyon Days boxes from the Prince of Wales are the rarest and most valuable in the world with some commissions being as low as 25 pieces. Most being ordered in a quantity or 50 to 100. Some boxes were given as Christmas gifts or as a thank you to staff after a tour. The most sought after royal box is with the Highgrove design given as a Christmas present with Charles and Diana’s signature inside the lid. These boxes are never offered to the public unless through resale or an auction site and that is still rare as most people keep the boxes. This collection of 12 boxes were purchased directly by me, Alicia Carroll from a retired member of the Prince of Wales staff who was given many boxes as gifts. A Certificate of Authenticity will be given to the buyer from Everything Royal. They are being offered as a collection or separately. If purchased as a collection, they are $1300.00 per box.

Item 3001 – HRH Prince Charles and Lady Diana Spencer announced their engagement on February 24, 1981. In this 3 page hand written letter, on royal stationary from the H.M. Yacht Britannia, dated August 8, 1980, a mere six months before his engagement to Diana, Charles refers to „Camilla“ as his professional advisor. This is the only letter known to refer to Camilla before or during his marriage to Princess Diana. We all know, that relationship has never altered. He has had a 30 year plus affair with a woman who herself was married during a great part of their relationship and we all know the outcome!! It is signed, „as ever, Charles.“ $40,000.00 OrderKing Edward VIII gave up his throne as King of England in 1937 to marry the woman he said „he could no go on without“. Will Charles give up the throne to marry Camilla Parker Bowles or will the powers „that be“ not allow them to marry.
