It's not everyday you get 'most sincere thanks' from the Queen - as a Seymour girl found out.CHALPAT SONTI August 1, 2014 3:56am
It’s not every day you decide to send the Queen a present — but Katie Barnbrook is glad she did.
The Seymour five-year-old was having her own version of high tea on the Queen’s Birthday weekend — tea and jam biscuits, of course — when she decided to send Her Royal Highness a birthday present.
A drawing of Elizabeth II was dutifully dispatched across the high seas, but a greater surprise awaited.
A couple of weeks later Katie received a response from the Queen’s lady-in-waiting, thanking her for her ‘‘kind message and splendid drawing’’ and offering the Queen’s ‘‘most sincere thanks’’.
‘‘I liked it,’’ was Katie’s brief response when asked about the letter.
‘‘She was jumping up and down, excited,’’ was mum Sarah’s recollection of the day the Buckingham Palace-postmarked envelope arrived in the mail.
Needless to say the letter has now been framed for posterity.
