Copy of will

I have sent off all the forms for probate today only to realised I didn't keep a copy of the will but did for everything else!

Please can someone reassure me that when they send me the oath they will send me one of the three copies back that I had to send in? Otherwise have I totally fucked this up? Would the solicitors who I obtained the original will from have kept a copy when they passed it to me?

Yes the Probate Office sends a copy of the will back with the Oath, as it's an exhibit ie the solicitor and person swearing the oath both sign a copy of the will.

If you want a clean copy you can just take one before swearing the oath.

Thank you! I'm so relieved.
