Sue Tomkins, a Resident at HC One’s Court House care home, spent some time writing a letter to send to the Duchess of Cambridge.
Sue spent some time at the Malvern care home writing a letter to send to Katherine, Duchess of Cambridge.
In her letter, she wanted to explain how she had worked with the Martineau family in Tewkesbury at their nursery, planting flowers and vegetables.
Sue realised the connection when she was reading a book about the wedding of William and Kate and a distant family member was mentioned.
When Sue saw the surname was the same as her relative, she did some digging and found out that her friend David had a Great-great Aunt who was related to Kate’s maternal side of the family.
Sue was thrilled to receive a letter back with a lovely picture of Kate. She has put it up in her room on display.
Sue commented, “it is very nice that they reply to our letters as I’m sure they are very busy.”
