I would like to write to a royal but I am not really sure what to say/ask them. To anyone who has written to a royal...what did you say in your letter?

Hi evreybody !
I often write to the princely family of Monaco for birthdays and congratulations on events like soccer games, Amade 40th birthday... I wrote to prince Albert to ask him when he 'll be back in Megeve. We have a good friend in common. This family is really nice. They answered me. Caroline sent me a picture and an autograph on November 2003. Really nice.

When I wrote Queen Noor, my roommate, Marianne -- and she posts here as Totally Marianne, or something like that -- told me that I should just try to be polite and try to be just myself. But if you want to write them, then maybe you should ask her for some advice, because she really knows what to say to them, because she gets to be around them so much, when she's not too preoccupied with older boys. But she helped me write my letter to Queen Noor, and she told me a lot about herself too.

Sherry!

I usually write for a milestone: birthdays, weddings, births. Just a simple congratulatory letter will do or if you have some concerns or comments than you can write those as well. Oh, by the way, just received a thank you card from Constantijn and Laurentien. It was so adorable with a pic of the whole family on it.

A word of advice: I know it was mentioned before but: be yourself. Express yourself naturally. :flower:

Lord Sosnowitz:

You claimed the crown that you use is your "ducal crown" then why may I ask are you "Markgraf von Sosnowitz" Margrave of Sosnowitz.... a Margrave is a Count..or Marquis....not a Duke, am I correct? Duke in German is HERZOG

She has five, but I can get the address that Marianne told me to write to, and post it here later, if you want me to! Okay?

Sherry!

P.S. One is in the U.S.A. too!

To Les Tribunes Royales:

I am really sorry to post twice in the same topic, and make a mess. And I promise that I won't do this again. Okay? But I promised to give mybags an address of Queen Noor, so that she may write to her, and you have to keep a promise.

To mybags:

Marianne said that you should use this address for Queen Noor, but she said that Queen Noor might not get your mail for a while, if she is on her ranch next to the one by Harrison Ford's ranch, where he breeds horses. And I don't know where that is, because Marianne went back to sleep again. And she probably wouldn't tell me where that is either!

To: Her Majesty Queen Noor,
The Office of Her Majesty Queen Noor,
Bab Al Salam Palace,
Amman, Jordan

Attn: The Senior Assistant to Her Majesty Queen Noor of Jordan

P.S. I can't read the zip code, because the ink got blurred. So you'll probably have to ask the post office for that.

Sherry!

Neat thread! I never saw it before.
I sent Prince Felix of Luxembourg a birthday card back in June, and I got a card back from the Palace. It was computer-written and had no signature on it, so I'm not sure that my card even reached him [probably intercepted by a secretary]. Anyhow, attached are some poor-quality scans of the card I received thanking me [my scanner sucks]. Note- HUGE files. Sorry.

Oh, and for those who don't speak French, the card is basically saying "His Royal Highness wishes to thank you for the kind letter you addressed to him."

Oh my goodness, I am so excited after reading that post. I want to send something too; maybe in time for Guillaume's birthday. How did you address the envelope? Oh, and did you write in French, German or English? :p

To the people that sent cards; what kind did you send? I don't want to send something that is tacky, but, knowing me, it will be.

I wrote in English to him. I got a really pretty birthday card with silver foil stars on it and wrote inside "Happy 20th Birthday, Felix!" and signed my name at the bottom. Then I addressed the envelope to "HRH Prince Felix of Luxembourg, c/o the Grand-Ducal Palace", etc. So there you have it! It's so neat to get a response back.

As far as choosing a card goes, my best advice is to get something that's eye-catching, yet not garish or comical, with a simple message printed inside or blank inside. You could always write a letter, too, but on nice stationery [this is where I have to leave my Cinnamoroll and PomPom Purin letter sets in the desk ].

And, remember everyone- Guillaume's birthday is coming up very soon- less than a month away! Shower him with letters and cards and wish him a happy 23rd birthday! I already bought him a card.....might get him a little trinket gift, too ;P

Thank you for that. As soon as my exams are over, I'll buy him a nice, pretty card and send it to him. Hmm, I hadn't thought about a gift, but that's a nice idea. What about a stuffed kangaroo or koala? Ha ha. =)

I'm sure they do but their personal email addresses more than likely wouldn't be made public. I've never really looked into this, but maybe some of them have a general email address [like the president of the US- president@whitehouse.gov] that you can send mail to. Anyone know?
