Years ago, I sent Prince William four letters for various occasions and received three letters back from St James' Palace saying that due to the amount of mail he receives, he couldn't enter into correspondance with me.

In addition, I sent Prince Harry a couple of letters, and received one letter back, again from St James' Palace, saying that Prince Harry had read my letter and asked his PA to send me his best wishes.

In addition, I sent the Countess of Wessex a couple of letters, and received one letter back from Bagshot Park saying that the Countess had asked her PA to tell me that she appreciated my letter and sent me her very best wishes. Along with the letter was a postcard with a photograph of the Earl and Countess on the front.

Via e-mail and tchat. But the next time she comes in Paris I'll meet her.
She seems to me really nice and really an interesting woman. We discussed about many subjects but royalty, because she doesn't want to speak about it.

I sent a letter today to Crown Prince Haakon and Crown Princess Mette-Marit. I congratulated them on the birth of Sverre Magnus. I though it would be fun to write a letter since I share a birthday with Sverre.

I write to members of different Royal families quite a lot, most are replied to by staff, TSH The Prince and Princess of Liechtenstein sent a signed photograph once eventhough I had not requested it.

I always write in a formal manner beginning "May it please Your Majesty" for a King or Queen or "Your Royal Highness" for prince or pricess and I end my letters in a traditional manner by writing "I have the honour to remain, sir/madam, Your Majesty's/Royal Highness's most humble and obedient servant" and then I sign it.

It is always nice to recieve the replies on Palace headed notepaper.

Yes Prince Hans-Adam II and Princess Marie sent a signed photo, they also included one from Alios and Sophie.

It was very nice of them, I wrote to them to ask for info on the castle for a project I was doing and they very graciously included the photos.

That's wonderful! Well done you. I may have to write myself - I'm a huge admirer of Princess Marie.

If you write to the King of Thailand on the occasion of this Diamond Jubilee and send it to the Thai Embassy they send it to the King in the diplomatic bag and it is Laid before HM and he signals his appreciation and then the Embassy write back to say that HM appreciated your letter.

Quite nice paper form the embassy and The Ambassador signs it.

I'm glad I found this thread because I'm wondering if I should start sending out form letters and then if any celebrity royals respond I can sell whatever they send me on e-bay ... has anyone tried this yet?

Don't worry Juanita, her staff will probably write you back to thank you. By the way how do these royals find the time to read and write back to all their admirers? I'm thinking of writing something but not sure when to do it. Do you get a response if you are lucky or do they always send you a reply back?

Usually they send a reply, i know some pleople who didn't have a response and other who had it! I think it's a question of time to read and write back, like you said Kelly! :)

i want to write to Martha Louise (do you think if i use the norweigen family address mentioned earlier in this thread and put as the person addressed to, Princess Martha Louise of Norway; would Martha Louise receive it?) and Queen Margarethe. Do you think it would be okay to write to QMII about her 66th Birthday even if it was a couple of months ago and art?

It usually takes at least a couple of weeks, because the royal in question usually get a lot of mail for special occasions. So there's a lot for the office of the royal to go through, sort and reply too.

I don't send mail to royals very often, but when I do, I send them at least two weeks in advance.

I wrote to HM King Carl Gustaf on his 60th Birthday, I recieved a signed card/photo which read: I wish to extend my warmest thanks for all the kindness and generosity shown to me on the occasion of my birthday.
Carl Gustaf

I'd be more inclined to wish Margrethe a speedy recovery after her recent surgery, if I was writing to her now, than greetings for her 66th birthday several months ago. The latter, in my opinion, just makes it look like your letter/postcard got lost in the mail/your home, until you had the time to post it. But maybe that's just me.
