Today I received a letter from the office of Her Majesty Queen ELizabeth II thanking me for my kind wishes for a Happy Christmas…
As with recent years it is a form letter with only the year where a signature might be and not the signature of a Lady-in-Waiting.
Most notable to me was that this year, there was no mention of His Royal Highness the Duke of Edinburgh in the reply. I am unsure if this is due to his being fully retired from public life, or if BY MISTAKE I only addressed the card I had sent to Her Majesty.
Either way this letter was sent on Buckingham Palace stationary
