Hi Marlene, I'm always curious about those black outlined death notices that some of the royal families use. Are you on their correspondence list and they send them directly to you? Or are they sent to a press office for publication in newspapers and magazines?

sometimes one gets them with the thank you card (after I send a sympathy card), but these are the paid death announcements, what the family puts into the newspaper to announce the death. Monika's was in several newspapers, including the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung
