Much like many other members of the Firm, the Duchess of Cornwall received letters from her fans in the run-up to her birthday in July. One of her supporters has since received a thank you card back from Camilla’s office and decided to share its content on Twitter.

And the brief message written in the card sent royal fans wild as it showcased Camilla’s known sense of humour.

The card received by Twitter user ChristinZ read: “Thank you for your birthday message.

“I can’t quite believe that I’ve reached three quarters of a century!”

Prince Charles’s wife turned 75th on July 17.

Royal fans were quick to react to Camilla’s quirky message, with one Twitter user, named Toria, replying to the original tweet saying: “Haha I love that little message!”

Similarly, @brigantia__ tweeted: “How wonderful. I just love Camilla.”

Another fan of the Duchess believes this thank you card is perfectly in tune with her humour.

@maryj1309 wrote: “Such a lovely response, so Camilla style.”

And @loveforcambridg added: “Aw lucky you!! And I love her message.”

Finally, the reply also caught the attention of Canadian royal commentator and journalist Patricia Treble, who tweeted: “Camilla’s humour extends to her mail.”

The Duchess officially marked her milestone birthday by guest-editing a special issue of Country Life.

The front cover of the magazine, which also celebrated its 125th anniversary, featured a relaxed portrait of Camilla taken by Kate, Duchess of Cambridge.

In the snap – set at Ray Mill House, Camilla’s retreat in Lacock, Wiltshire – the Duchess smiles widely while sitting on a bench in the garden.

The work behind the scenes carried out by the Duchess and the Country Life staff was portrayed in an ITV documentary aired ahead of the royal’s birthday.

During the programme, a friend of the senior royal spoke about the Duchess’ “wicked sense of humour”.

Sarah Troughton, a first cousin once removed of the Queen, also said: “I think there has been a wind of change in the duchess’ popularity.

“But I think it’s because she has been entirely natural, entirely straight with everybody, looks you straight in the eye, does her royal duties with real panache and style and the public are very happy to meet her.”

Indeed, Camilla’s popularity in the UK has slowly but steadily grown since her marriage to Prince Charles in April 2005.

In February, the Queen further helped Camilla to be embraced by the public as she expressed her desire for the Duchess to be known as Queen Consort once Prince Charles accedes to the throne.

The monarch’s statement, dated February 5, said: “When, in the fullness of time, my son Charles becomes King, I know you will give him and his wife Camilla the same support that you have given me; and it is my sincere wish that, when that time comes, Camilla will be known as Queen Consort as she continues her own loyal service.”

Camilla spent her birthday privately but Clarence House gave her fans a reason to celebrate as it released a new picture of the Duchess on the eve of her big day and another a few hours later to thank those who sent her a message of best wishes.

While the first snap featured the Duchess sitting in her garden with a cup of tea in front of her, the second saw her cuddling one of her beloved rescue dogs.
