How to write a letter to Queen Elizabeth II., the Queen of the United Kingdom

How to write a letter to Queen Elizabeth II. – Sure, and she will read it, of course! Well, it might sound a bit strange, but you can write letters to the Queen herself and rumours say she factually reads them! Can you even remember the last time you wrote a letter by hand on paper or even with a fountain pen? Me neither, but special occasions call for special actions and a letter to her Majesty The Queen is absolutely worth it. Her official postal address for letters is Buckingham Palace in London. If you’re not sure how to write this extraordinary letter, primarily if you are just used to write digital messages, the Royal Government gives some tips on writing such a formal letter. They advise to open your letter to Queen Elizabeth II. with „Madam“ and to close it with „I have the honour to be, Madam, Your Majesty’s humble and obedient servant“. But they highlight that „this traditional approach is by no means obligatory. You should feel free to write in whatever style you feel comfortable.“

Does Queen Elizabeth II. read all those letters?

Yes, apparently she really does read all the messages that are sent to her “official address”. (however, I imagine they are preselected to evict any obscurities and bullying messages). And now imagine Queen Elizabeth II, with her curly white hair, sitting in a cosy red wingchair with her beloved Pembroke Welsh Corgi running around, a cup of tea nearby and with her glasses down at her nose reading those letters. One stack with „to do“-letters and another one with the „done“-letters. In the background some crackling fireplace and outside the window you can see tourist walking by Buckingham Palace in London.
Sounds like a pretty enjoyable day, if you don’t have other Obligations of a Queen. So, if you want to write her Majesty the Queen some kind words, don’t hesitate and bring the charming old lady a smile on her face because everyone likes to receive letters, handwritten letters!
