I Got A Letter From ‘Buckingham Palace’.

This was in response to the letter I sent to the Queen on May 24, 2018. I always knew, without an inkling of doubt, that I would get a reply — even if it took a few months.

It came today in the mail. As soon as I saw the envelope I knew what it was.

I am NOT going to divulge what was in the letter. That would be ‘bad form’ from a British gentleman. I am happy.

I love the envelope. For those of you not familiar the “E II R” with the little crown on top is the Queen’s crest. The ‘E R‘ stands, in Latin, for ‘Elizabeth Regina‘ (Queen Elizabeth) and the II is because she is ‘Queen Elizabeth II‘.

Postmarked ‘Buckingham Palace‘.

Love the now hardly ever used BLUE ‘Par Avion’ sticker. We don’t use it because mail no longer goes by sea across the Atlantic.

Made my day.

My Letter To The Queen Was Successfully Delivered To Buckingham Palace.

This is a very serious matter to I. Which is why I wrote, extremely respectfully, to the Queen.

I now know that the letter, at a minimum, was safely (I trust) delivered to Buckingham Palace — by the trusty ‘Royal Mail’.

I know that somebody of semi-import will cast their eyes on it.

Not sure what will happen after that.

I am hoping that it will make it at least to one of the Queen’s Private Secretaries.

I am HOPING to hear back, but I am not holding my breath. If I indeed get any correspondence I will, of course, share with YOU.


Pretty prompt delivery. I mailed it around 3pm on Thursday, May 24, 2018 at the Alton Post Office.

It left Newark, NJ on Saturday, May 26, 2018. So, it missed the U.S. holiday on Monday.

So, 6-days from Alton, NH to Buckingham Palace isn’t too bad. I am cool with that — though I have to confess it was NOT cheap. I am so glad e now have e-mail and Facebook. International postal rates are a killer.

I Wrote To The Queen About The Kraut Wagon At The Royal Wedding.

I was NOT joking when I said that I was upset at the Princes arriving in Windsor in a German wagon.

So, I wrote to the Queen!

That is what she is there for and I did NOT become a monarchist if I did NOT believe I could call upon my Royals when I perceive that a wrong has been done.

I am actually sure that this letter will get some attention. It might never make it to the Queen but somebody at Buckingham Palace will take note. I sent it ‘certified’ etc.

I was NOT going to let it pass.

This is important stuff and I KNOW that I will find an ear in the Palace.

I know one thing for sure. Nobody seeing the letter will accuse me of disrespect or not been a patriot. The letter is clear that this is a matter of patriotism.

I have faith in this Queen. It took me a long time to get there and there.

I will, of course, keep you posted.
