The 1984 Christmas card features a colour portrait of Charles, Diana, and Prince's William and Harry and signed by both Charles and Diana.

Charles has handwritten, and signed:

Aunt Olga, much love from all four of us, Charles

Diana has added her signature 'Diana' in black pen.

The card is addressed to Princess Olga of Greece and Denmark, who later became Princess of Yugoslavia. Following the death of her husband, Prince Paul of Yugoslavia, Princess Olga resided at Kensington Palace in London and attended Charles and Diana's wedding in 1981. 

Charles and Diana signed Christmas cards are increasingly rare, and one's with Royal connection recipients are rarely seen, so this is a great item for a Royal Memorabilia collector.

According to the Celebrity Memorabilia Index the value of King Charles' signature has increased 10% to £1,100 in 2022, with Princess Diana's signed photograph up 5.56% to £4,750. 

The same auction sees a Camilla, Queen Consort inscribed greetings card, signed by Camilla, available with an estimate of €400 - €600.

William, With best wishes from Camilla P.B.

According to the Celebrity Memorabilia Index global search interest in Camilla has increased by 6,796% in the last 3 months, with autographs now selling for up to £995 at auction.
