Tipp des Tages : 05 June

To write to Queen Elizabeth II

To write to the Queen of United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland (and 15 other countries), Elizabeth II, you can send her a letter by mail to the following address:
Her Majesty The Queen
Buckingham Palace
London SW1A 1AA
United Kingdom

Begin your letter with 'Your Majesty', and finish with 'Yours sincerely' or more formally by:
'I have the honor to be, Madam, Your Majesty’s humble and obedient servant' (servant should be replaced by subject if you're British).

The Queen speaks French fluently, so you do not need to write your letter in English. However stay very polite and do not ask personal questions.
And do not forget to put a stamp on the envelope!
