I was quite surprised to come home and find a letter from Buckingham Palace in the mail.
My letter from Queen Elizabeth II. (08/06)
The letter said:
The Queen thanks you for the kind message of good wishes which you have sent to her on the occasion of her eightieth birthday.
Her Majesty has been very touched by the response to her special birthday and much appreciates your thought for her at this time.
The Queen hopes you will understand that, because of the enormous number ofletters, cards and messages she has received, it has not been posible to write to you until now.
