British Royal Family Correspondence & Upcoming Birthdays


Fun Stuff / Wednesday, March 6th, 2019

Hello! There has been so much interest in my posts and photos regarding corresponding with the British Royal family, I wanted to do a follow up.

There are a few British Royal Family birthdays coming up and it would be a great time to send a letter or card and receive a response.  If you missed my previous post about corresponding with the Royal Family, it is basically explaining my keen interest with them.  Ever since Diana/Charles Mania I have been interested in this family.  You can find the story under “good stuff”. 

Before I provide the birthdays and addresses, there is some etiquette that is required in writing this family.  Address all correspondence (envelope and opening of letter/card) with Royal Highness.  If sending to one person it is “Your Royal Highness” unless it is Queen Elizabeth II, she is addressed as “Your Majesty”. If more than one person (i.e. Charles and Camilla) you can use “Your Royal Highnesses” and then title. (I give an example in my other Royal Family post).

When writing the letter do not use “you”.  Example, if writing the Queen: “I take this opportunity to wish Your Majesty a Happy Birthday” Or to Prince Henry (Harry) and Meghan: “I take this opportunity to congratulate Your Highnesses on the upcoming birth of your first child.”  Get the idea  J

Close your letter with “Humbly yours” or “Sincerely” is fine too. Best to keep letter brief, not more than one page.

On to the Birthdays (in order coming up)J.
