We consider branching laws for the restriction of some irreducible unitary representations $\Pi$ of $G=O(p,q)$ to its subgroup $H=O(p-1,q)$. In Kobayashi (arXiv:1907.07994, [14]), the irreducible subrepresentations of $O(p-1,q)$ in the restriction of the unitary $\Pi|_{O(p-1,q) }$ are determined. By considering the restriction of packets of irreducible representations we obtain another very simple branching law, which was conjectured in {\O}rsted--Speh (arXiv:1907.07544, [17]).
