A Royal Reply

A message from Her Majesty the Queen, who received a copy of our book, 'Writing and What-not' on the occasion of her Diamond Jubilee.

Our membership secretary, Gill Johnson recently sent a copy of 'Writing and What-not' to the Queen as a gift, on the occasion of her Diamond Jubilee.

This is the reply:


Dear Mrs Johnson,

          The Queen wishes me to write and thank you, and the team at Pencils and What-not, for your recent letter and for your warm words on the occasion of Her Majesty’s Diamond Jubilee.

          The Queen was interested to hear about your group and was touched that you took the time and trouble to send a copy of your book as a gift for Her Majesty for her Jubilee.

The Queen has been moved by the loyalty and support she has received throughout her reign, and Her Majesty was very pleased to receive your letter.

I am to thank you once again for your good wishes and for writing as you did.


Yours sincerely

Mary Morrison

Lady-in- Waiting
