The Duchess is known for her positive mindset. Earlier in February, a royal fan shared a sweet reply she received after sending Sarah a Christmas message. In response, the Duchess sent the fan a signed family photo of herself, Prince Andrew and their daughters Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie. The image of the foursome appears to have been taken at Balmoral Castle, the Queen's Scotland estate.
The front of the card depicts a mountain scene with a winding pathway and the words "We look to the road ahead." Inside, it read: "We are united with gratitude for your support and kindness. Thank you." The card was signed by Sarah, Andrew, Beatrice, Eugenie and her husband Jack Brooksbank.
