A Letter from the Palace…
One day I returned home from work to find a very posh envelope among the usual bills and letters that had been delivered that morning. It was very classy indeed, ivory white with a smooth velour texture and certainly of a much higher quality than I am generally used to receiving.
On the front were the words the ‘Office of the Lord Chamberlain’ and the printed franking machine mark in the top right hand corner said ‘Buckingham Palace, London’.
Now, I don’t receive mail from Buckingham Palace everyday so I was naturally intrigued.
Inside the envelope there was even more special stationery and an expensive invitation card from the Lord Chamberlain himself stating that he has been commanded by her Majesty to invite me and a guest to a Royal tea party at the Palace.
Commanded no less!
