Sendeth Greeting!

Your Majesty, Madam, Our beloved Sister!

Being desirious of making provision for the representation in Your Majesty's Realms of the interests of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, We have made choice of Our Trusty and Well-beloved Dame Rosemary Jane Spencer, CMG, to reside with Your Majesty in the character of Our Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary for the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.

The experience which We have had of Dame Rosemary Jane Spencer's talents and zeal for Our service assures Us that the selection We have made will be perfectly agreeable to Your Majesty; and that she will discharge the duties of her Mission in such a manner as to merit Your Majesty's approbation and esteem, and to prove herself worthy of this new mark of Our confidence.

[etc.]





I quoted this, because I am a bit confused. Not a response at the post. I just needed to quote it to read it better. approbation means praise, then plentipotentiary, means diplomat. desirous means desire, provision means provide. So the letter says DRJ Spencer wants diplomatic immunity? Diplomatic Immunity? I don't know. I am sorry. lol. Oh she had or has that there. What a fantastic letter. They write really eloquently over there. BBC says she is in the Order St. Michael and St. George, this Dame Rosemary Jane, CMG H.M. Ambassador, The Hague. What is that? What an interesting letter, I appreciate the sharing of it. Reside with? Reside with how? Oh Netherlands, lots of art there. Great letter. Zeal? Means enthusiasm. I am confused to the point of feeling quite comical about this letter. Thanks again for sharing. She must be supporting prosperity. When was that written?

Apologies for quoting, but I need it for reference to learn a moment. Sofia and Carl Philip who are they? Says she is an er*t!c glamor model and he is duke of varmland. What is varmland? Oh it's a where, says, in it's Sweden. What a nice card. The card thanks someone.

The letter is a kind of reference letter/letter of introduction that one employer might give to another. As you know, most countries have an ambassador in most other countries and this letter talks about Britain's ambassador to the Netherlands. Dame Rosemary will have gone over to the Netherlands to start work as Britain's ambassador and the first thing she will do is meet the Netherlands' head of state -in this instance Queen Beatrix- and will have taken along the letter to give to her - sort of hello, I'm the new British Ambassador and here's the letter to prove it.

The letter is, of course, written in a very formal, ancient way, but it basically says the following:

From Queen Elizabeth

To Queen Beatrix

Greetings friend!

Because I want to have an ambassador in your country in order to represent my country's interests in your country, I have chosen Dame Rosemary Jane Spencer (she is trustworthy and we like her a lot) to come and live in the Netherlands as my special Ambassador and diplomat.

Dame Rosemary has shown great talent and zeal and so I am quite sure that choosing her will be agreeable to you and she will work so well that you will think she is just a good as I do.

I sent a gushy letter and an antique Book of Common Prayer to Queen Fabiola and got a lovely letter from her Secretariat. She was such a lovely lady. I was hoping she'd sign it, but I knew it was slim. From what was said I got a strong feeling that she really read my letter as she spoke of specifics.

Does anyone know addresses for writing to the following individuals?

Duke Franz of Bavaria
Prince Georg Friedrich of Prussia
Prince Karl von Habsburg

Hi Riley
When I got a reply from Georg Friedrich of Prussia's office, it came from:
Generalverwaltung des vormals regierenden Preussischen Koenigshauses
Tristanstrasse 17D
D-14109 Berlin
(and this can be seen on a photo I posted previously)
I didn't write to that address though, I originally wrote to Hohenzollern Castle and I also sent an e-mail to them (berlin@preussen.de) but seeing as the reply came from Tristanstrasse, it would make sense to write to that address.

For Franz of Bavaria, I wrote to Schloss Nymphenburg and this is where the reply came from as well. The full address that came with the reply can be seen in a photo posted previously.

I have had no luck with the Habsburgs...

That adress is a (office-) villa in a green neighbourhood bordering the Wannsee lake. A few villas furtherer, Tristanstrasse 8-10 was the house of the three brothers Schenk, Counts von Stauffenberg (famous for the plot to assasinate Hitler).

So you put just their name on the front of the envelope and yours on the back right? Provided they actually receive the letter, you should get a reply as usual.


I am not sure what the postal service is like in Italy, but here in the UK, they are pretty good at delivering letters without the full address - it may take longer to deliver but it's happens quite a lot.

No, I wrote the address of Clarence House on the back as usual and I added also mine... It italy the sender's address has to be written on the back of the envelope, on the top left... But I read is some blogs that it is better to write my address on the inside of the letter, again...

In italy the service is quite awful, but it works better for foreign post... For example, when I sent a letter to the dutch royals, I got the reply back after 3 weeks... Thanks for asking

It took quite a long time for me to get a response from Fabiola's group. Something like two or three months.

I think I wrote to Casa Austria, didn't realise there was a residence in Pöcking. Why? Have there been any successes with Pöcking?
