Well I never! Before Christmas I received a letter from her Maj thanking me for congratulating her on sixty years on the throne and the Jubilee along with a note that says I hope I will understand that because of the enormous amount of letters she has received it has not been possible to reply to me until now.
Now I had never sent any letter so this is the only explaination I can think of.
Back in June I did of course do some Jubilee mailers for the occasion. One of them is re-created above, using the national anthem ending in GOD SAVE THE and the Jubilee stamp. They never arrived so I assumed some stamp nut or collector within the Royal Mail had kept them for himself. I even emailed Royal Mail later to have a little moan. My address was printed on the back to keep the front clean.
SO… I can only assume whoever picked it up took my address as the senders address and forwarded it onto the palace for her pleasure. So low and behold I think someone’s nabbed it and half a year later she says thank you. Well thank you your Majesty for indeed brightening up my blog. A little bit of me was tempted to write to the palace and explain the mix up but think I’ll let this one slide!
