A letter for the Queen

Elizabeth drew a picture for the Queen and wants me to post it to her. We are not exactly Monarchists. In fact, I’m pretty apathetic about it all and couldn’t care less whether Kate has had a haircut or wears high street clothing. If she ever cycles her kids around in a cargo bike then I’ll take some interest but until then she can become a nun for all I care.

Elizabeth, on the other hand, has always been very interested – mostly, I think, because she has the same name. But we named her after my granny who was Elizabeth, and also after my favourite fictional character, Elizabeth Bennet. However, Elizabeth loves that her name is on all the coins and so she drew a picture and wrote a letter which I now have to post to the Queen 🙂


It says:

Dear Queen Elizabeth. I droo this pitcher for you. I am six years old. My name is Elizabeth is well. Love from Elizabeth.
