It could be six months before you get a response so be patient! You don't want to go down the road of being too persistent because it will not help and will be seen as just writing so that you get a response, rather than writing for genuine intention - afterall, it's not an application for X-Factor!
Instead of sending the same letter again, if I were you, I would wait until Christmas, Easter and the royal birthdays and simply send a letter or card on these occassions. If you do this regularly each year, your sentiments will be recognised and will increase your chances of a response.
I think it's all to do with luck and chance. The problem anyone has in sending a letter to royalty is that most letters will not actually be read by the royal person themselves but by a member of staff who could be a private secretary or an under-secretary or assistant depending on how busy the office is on any given day and what arrangements may have been made on the day your letter arrives. It will also depend on the individual reading the letter who will decide whether or not the letter should be passed higher up the chain or be set aside for "standard response" or even, one imagines, "no-response".
Anyway, good luck and I do hope you receive a response very soon!
