This week the boys excitedly retrieved a letter from reception upon which there was a rather famous postmark. Last term the boys in Year 1 wrote to Her Majesty to ask her questions about her residences, as part of their Castles topic. Her Majesty the Queen (in fact her Lady-in-Waiting) had indeed replied to their letters on beautiful headed paper from Sandringham House. Enclosed were various brochures inviting the boys to visit Windsor Castle, Buckingham Palace, Balmoral and many more. We have never seen the boys so excited as they carried the letter back to the Pre-Prep as if it was the Crown Jewels! It is now framed and will take pride of place near the portrait of the Queen that the boys created for her Diamond Jubilee.
