When the Groningen fire department decided to send a baby gift to Prince Harry and the Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle, they were most likely not expecting anything in return. But the firefighters received a response from Kensington Palace this week.

Back in October, the members of the fire department put together a package of gifts for the royal couple’s baby, including a romper and a bib. Ever the professionals, they also took the opportunity to educate Meghan and Harry about how to help keep their baby safe and included a pamphlet with fire safety tips.
Dagblad van het Noorden reports that the pamphlet is part of a wider campaign to educate new parents about how to protect their children in the event of a fire and to minimize their risk of suffering burns. The department also offers to carry out fire safety inspections for families with young children.
On Thursday, the fire department received a thank you note addressed from Kensington Palace thanking them for the gifts. The fire fighters say that have not yet gotten an invitation to ensure that the palace will be fire proof for the newborn, but they have already framed the letter and hung it up at the station.
