Twitter Users Wonder Why The Card Is Not In Prince William's Possession
Meanwhile, some fans were wondering why the card ended up in an auction house and not in Prince William's possession since it was a gift from his grandmother to him.
"Why is this letter not in Williams possession?" another asked. "It was sold at auction in 2016 having been stolen by an employ of his mothers. Technically the Boston RR auction house had the utterly horrible taste to view it as an item one could auction. There's no guess to it though. Glad you find theft and profiting from it funny. Few do," another responded.
"This should be returned to Prince William, it belongs to him. A personal memory for him," a third user commented.
