An original signed Royal Christmas card from the years of World War Two. Hand-signed and dated in ink by both King George VI and Queen Elizabeth (later the Queen Mother), this card incorporates a photograph taken in April 1942 of their Majesties with their daughters Princesses Margeret and Elizabeth (now Queen Elizabeth II) with a corgi at their feet. The opposite side of the card carries the message 'With best wishes for Christmas and the New Year' embossed in gold with the date underneath and handwritten by the King himself.
The card has been mounted framed and glazed and is ready to hang on the wall of anyone who wishes to own a real piece of history.

We will be donating all proceeds of sale to Crisis, a charity providing shelter and meals at Christmas for those less fortunate than ourselves.
Merry Christmas to all and God save the Queen!
