Keep it simple. Most likely it will not even reach the eyes of the Queen herself. Start with Your Majesty and for the rest it is Madame (for the King: Sir). Just follow usual etiquette for any normal letter. That is all.

Note that your letter will be received by the Dienst Koninklijk Huis (Royal House Service) and then distributed to the Kabinet van de Koning (the official secretariate) or to the Particulier Secretaris (the Private Secretary) which will then distribute it furtherer in the pipeline.

The chance is there that your request will be answered by a ministerial department, for an example the Department of Education. In that case the Royal House will give notice that your letter has been forwarded. That the King or Queen actually see your letter will be rare. They are given a selection of letters by the Secretariate, meaning that officials have the opinion it needs a personal consideration by the royal in question.

thank you. either way, i hope she shall hear about it. i have had the opportunity to see her at the EBC meeting some days ago and heard her speech.

She is indeed an inspiration to many of us.

Thank you once again,
