I thought about that too quite a few times as I've heard that for the most part, all correspondence is read and acknowledged should it be deemed appropriate even if its a form letter.

I wish my memory was a bit better but this puts me in mind of the story of when William visited an elderly lady, she had remarked about receiving birthday greetings or something from HM for a few years and I guess there was a picture enclosed and the dear said something to William about HM getting another dress or something. Later on that year, this elderly woman was invited to a garden party at BP and met the Queen. Perhaps someone remembers this story better than I but I know its been within the past 2 years as I read it right here on TRF.

Its remarkable I think that no matter who you are or who you write to in the BRF, you kind of have to have faith that your post will be read. Amazing!

Post Your Letter From The Queen

Hello,

I recently read a thread a number of threads down about letters to and from the Queen. I plan on writing a letter to the Queen and was just wondering if people can post what you got as a reply after you sent her a letter because I just want to see what I might be expecting from the Queen. (I know she of course does not write them herself) I also would like to ask how long did it take for her to send you a reply and how would the envelope look like.

Thanks!

I plucked up the courage to write to The Queen for the Diamond Jubilee earlier in this year. I felt a bit silly writing about how much I admire the Queen and her family and all the work they do and have done over the years, but as I put it in the post box (with a stamp with the Queen's picture on it, of course) I felt glad I had done it. I received a generic printed Diamond Jubilee card in return as well as a portrait of HM The Queen which I requested on a little note I put in addressed to the Lady-in-Waiting who I know reads the letters from TV. I know they send out thousands of them every year but I still felt very touched to get this in the mail - and was very glad it arrived on the day of the Service of Thanksgiving

Well done! I've still never written to the Queen or any of her family because of similar reasons, never having written before why suddenly write now kind of thing, but your post is very encouraging and hopefully i and many others will write!

What a wonderful experience. I too have never written to the Queen but have often thought about it. I suppose I havent done it thinking I would not get a response. I suppose it cant hurt to just do it, what is the worse that can happen? Who knows, I could be pleasantly surprised right? Oh heck, I think I shall do it now. Wish me luck and by the way, do I begin with Your Majesty?

Good luck, Lady Gabrielle. We know the Queen reads a selection of mail she receives so you may get lucky. The Debretts website has a whole section of writing to the Queen:

One of our members based in Bangladesh recently sent a card to Her Majesty on the occasion of the Diamond Jubilee.
It is noteworthy that the letter he received in reply is not a generic word processor-produced "thank you", but relates specifically to what he had sent.

Lovely letter, and from Lady Susan Hussey, too. A letter to be treasured I'm sure.

It's very interesting, as the Diamond Jubilee usual reply was an illustrated card.

I actually received a specific reply to my wishes for the Queen's 80th birthday because I had enclosed a poem about the Queen, which was briefly mentioned in the letter from the Palace. (sorry for the bad scan).
