Duke of Mecklenburg

Friday I got a card from Princess Marie-Astrid and Carl-Christian.

Now I'm looking for the Address of Georg Borwin, Duke of Mecklenburg and the Address of King Leka I of Albania (He is now still living in Tirana, but I have no Address).

I have sent a card to Alexander & Máxima congratulating them on the birth of Ariane, and one to Alexander for his 40th birthday at the end of the week. My card to Mary & Fred congratulating them on the birth of Lilleprinsesse is sitting on my desk waiting to be posted on Thursday!

The Private Secretaries to Queen Margrethe II and The Princess Royal have both replied thanking me for my letters, Queen Margrethe's paper is awful!

I've never attempted to send a letter to a royal before. Does anyone send anything back, like a secretary or something?

A response will be sent but normally not directly from the royal personage concerned, although sometimes a person gets lucky.

One of my students sent a letter to the Queen for imformation relating to an assignment some years ago about the abdication.

This student did get a reply from the Queen - the student asked a question about what the Queen remembered about the events and the reply was very non-commital - something like 'I remember a lot of change and realised things were happening but at the time I didn't fully take in what was happening until we were told definitely that my parents were going to be the King and Queen'.

Other students only got replies from the private secretaries, but their questions weren't about what the Queen remembered but more about the details of the abdication itself.

Her Majesty was very kind to reply herself to this student! It shows how dedicated to her "job" she is. She certainly knows she is seen as "United Kingdom's Mother". Good for her!

Vanesa.

Today I received a telegram from Spain thanking me for the letter which I sent to The king and Queen on the occasion of the birth of Sofia.
It was nice to get a telegram as opposed to a letter, quite different.

The Spanish text and a rough translation is below.

De jefe de la casa de su majestad el rey

Sus majestades me encargan que traslade, en su nombre y junto a su afectuoso saludo, su sincero agradecimiento por las amables palabras de felicitación que han recibido con motivo del nacimiento de su nieta, la infanta Sofía.

Aprovecho la ocasión para enviar un saludo muy cordial,

Alberto Aza Arias


Translation


The Head of The Household of HM The King

Their Majesties have commanded me to convey in Their name and with their affectionate greetings, Their sincere thanks for your kind words of congratulations which They have received on the birth of Their Granddaughter, The Infanta Sofia.

I take this occasion to offer you my very warm greetings,

Alberto Aza Arias

That's really sweet. What a wonderful gesture. I don't believe my Congresswoman would do that! That's really nice, royaltylover. Your English is fine.

Letters To Royals

It may already exist and I've missed it. I have several examples of Princess Caroline's handwriting, and a graphologist's analysis of her personality based on her handwriting, on the occasion of her first marriage. I'll post them when I get home, if there is any interest.

I got a similar reply from the Prince and Princess of Asturias on the occassion of Infanta Sofía's birth. Basically the same, just different words (daughter instead of granddaughter, etc )

Royal Letter Etiquette as used by Royalty

From within, what is the letter etiquette?

I noticed that HRM Queen Elizabeth II writes simply "Elizabeth II" at the end of the letter in penwork, and the addressing title in penwork at the top. (Still calling the person Your Excellency or addressing them by title".

Perhaps it was a head of state she would address by honorific because I imagine being that her peerage is equal to royalty she would not address anyone else by some title other than "Dear (Title) name) rather than an honorific. I was also surprised to see that royalty uses such simple stationery.

So from what I understand it the name of the palace the Queen or her Lady-in-Wating is currently in (Or for the King of Denmark, the palace he is in) is always below the Coat of Arms or Monogram? Is it always the name of the one their in?

Queen Elizabeth II is addressed as Her Majesty (HM) and HM signs a letter or any paperwork as Elizabeth R which stands for Elizabeth Regina.Regina in Latin means Queen.

That did not really help me too much. I did want to know other than the Queen.

My main question was if the current palace or residence the Queen or King of a country is presently in is always put below the coat of arms or monogram in a letter FROM an monarch.

Under the Coat of Arms on British Royal stationary, it says "Buckingham Palace". On my letter from the Duchess of Cornwall, it said, "Clarence House".
