The Queen and members of the royal family receive thousands of mails every year. These messages are everything from official correspondence to personally congratulatory messages from citizens. Royal events also see a massive influx of letters to the royal family.
Perhaps, you are thinking of extending your regards to a member of the royal family. For starters, you need to know how to write such a letter.
First, decide the matter of your topic. Taking this first step is essential because it will help you avoid rambling or writing off topic. Nobody wants to read a never-ending letter.
Second, use the right layout. Your address should be indented to the right of your letter.
Third, mind your language. Avoid long-winded sentences and do remember to be polite. The proper address for the Queen is ‘Madam’. And when closing your letter, use the phrase ‘I have the honour to be, Madam, Your Majesty’s humble and obedient servant’.
You may address male royals as ‘Sir’ or ‘Your Royal Highness’, depending on who you are talking to.
And fourth, when referring to the Queen, use the phrase ‘Your Majesty’ instead of the pronoun, ‘you’.
If you remember these points, it is very likely your letter will be given the attention it deserves.
And the royal family does not just receive mail. They also write and send letters.

So, if you ever sent a mail to any member of the royal family, chances are that you will get a response sooner or later.
You probably won’t catch the Queen on a typewriter like Kermit. There are people who are designated to do the typing. But be sure that she gets to see your mail.
