An Encyclopedia of Royal Knowledge
Anything as yet? Be interesting to see it when you do.
I wrote to King Felipe for his birthday in January. I received a standardized reply typed in all capitals (very strange) with no signature of the secretary. It was probably the most generic royal reply I have ever received, although I don't write as often as you do. I have just discovered your blog and find it great to read.
I will write to the Spanish royals again at some point. It does feel a little weird not having any replies from them at this point. I will probably write for Queen Letzia's birthday latter this year. The King and Queen of Netherland's birthday replies are written in all Capital letters as well. And it has no signature, but it's a card so I don't really expect one there, just with a letter. But I do have a few generic letters where there are no signature, and no date. Prince Andrew of UK last year sent some pretty generic letters. It was basically thank you for your letter. HRH is grateful you wrote. with no mention that I had written to wish him a merry christmas or a happy birthday. But his Office was really busy at that time with some scandal and they have since improved. Now they actually mention why I wrote.
I have written to them several times this year and have received no reply but I see a great deal of others receiving replies which puzzles me. I am hoping to receive their Christmas car this year but I haven't received anything yet.
