When my sister was a little girl she wrote a letter to the Queen. It was so exciting when she received an official reply and the following year the queen visited our home town Barnsley, riding in her carriage along Doncaster Road. We all waved flags and cheered. I was only 4 at the time but I do remember the experience.
I’ve been thinking about writing my own letter to royalty. In fact I was thinking of writing a letter to the Duchess of Cambridge preciously known as Kate Middleton. However I was not sure how to write a letter to Royalty.
So I thought I’d share how to write to the Duchess of Cambridge, or Catherine and William here on The Inspiration Edit. It’s something I will be doing for Christmas and why not share with other’s how you can write to Catherine and William too.
How To Address A Duchess In Writing
So I’ll begin by saying that Princess Catherine and Prince William do not have a personal email, Twitter or Facebook account. The traditional and only way to write correspondence is via the postal service.
When addressing Catherine or William you must use the titles, “Your Royal Highness” or “Dear Madam“. It is not acceptable to address the Princess via her first name and the letter needs to be official.
How To Write A Letter To Royalty
A letter to royalty should have a formal tone and not be too personalised, although you are more than welcome to tell them a little about your self for the purpose of explaining or giving context to your letter.
Be sure to share a return address and end your letter with the words “yours sincerely” or “most sincerely“.
Here is the address to write to The Duchess Of Cambridge, Catherine:
The Duchess Of Cambridge
London W8 4PU
There are lot’s of things you can write to the Duchess about. Maybe you would like to introduce yourself, talk about her charity work, congratulate her on her latest pregnancy or whatever you wish really.
I do hope this is helpful and would love to hear if you received a reply. I will be writing my letter this week and hopefully I will receive a reply from Kate or someone from her PR team.

Thank you for sharing this information,my wife and i both in our seventies wish just to thank them both for being such a much loved inspiration to us all.
When we lost Princess Diane we thought no one would ever come near to being a people,s Princess again,but now we have princess Catherine and so proud that Prince William has her by his side.

I hope the death of Prince Phillip will be a healing for the Royal family and Prince Harry. Life is so short. I don’t know who is right or who is wrong, but healing needs to happen. I think Prince William could lead this reunion because he seems to be so mature. I know there is a lot of hurt, but someone needs to take the high road. It never hurts, and always helps.
My prayers for this family.

Is there an email address for our royal highness? Even though she probably prefers Kate as she is so down to earth?
