keeping up with the royals

Your Personal Thank-you From Meghan Markle and Prince Harry

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry had a baby. Do you remember? It happened in May, back when summer was but a beautiful dream rather than a dirty old memory. They named the baby Archie, a name that was used before Archie’s birth in a ruse perpetrated by his cousin George, and potentially the name of a cat who got fat from eating too many grapes (a food that is not particularly good for cats, for the record).

If you are one of their many fans who sweetly, if a bit oddly (please be honest with yourself), sent them a note to congratulate Meghan and Harry on Archie’s christening, you may have received in return a note from the royal couple as a way of saying thank you. If you did not send them a note to congratulate them (rude) you can still see the note, which was recently posted to Instagram by a fan. Are you ready?

Okay, here it is:

Oh haha, ah, God. This is embarrassing. I’m sorry, that’s actually the note Jack Berger left for Carrie Bradshaw in season six, episode six of Sex and the City. It happened right after they made up after a brief break in their relationship. Remember? He showed up at her door? And they had sex? And then the next morning Carrie found the Post-it? Anyway, sorry about that. Here is the actual note Meghan and Harry sent to fans:

Oh God, no, sorry. I think — yes, okay, this is actually a screenshot from the next episode “The Post-it Always Sticks Twice,” where the girls go to that new club called Bed in order for Carrie to get over her Post-it breakup. Remember? Michael Showalter is there, in the Bed club? And then, you probably remember, Samantha buys a doobie from someone in a bar and Carrie smokes it in front of a cop?

And then the girls are like, “C’mon, give her a break. She got broken up with on a Post-it today.” And the cop is like, “Yeah right, I doubt it.” And then she shows him the Post-it to prove it? And like I guess that was enough to let her go? Because she’s white? Remember? Anyway, I’m sorry!

Okay, this — finally — is the note Meghan Markle and Prince Harry sent to fans:

Uggghh no, shit, I’m sorry — that’s a photo of Ron Livingston at Sundance in 2015 holding a re-creation of the Post-it. Here is the postcard from Meghan and Harry.

I’m grateful. I can. It’s Archie!
