Ella receives a Royal reply
3:00pm Saturday 26th October 2013 in Harwich and Manningtree News
A YOUNGSTER who penned a letter to the Queen is over the moon with a reply from Buckingham Palace.
Seven-year-old Ella Copping, of Dovercourt, got the idea after hearing her uncle and Nan speak about the Queen.
She sent the letter, asking the Queen to visit her and her class 2BK at the Mayflower Primary school, along with some drawings.
Her mum Sam Copping said Ella was thrilled when she received a reply from the Queen’s lady-in-waiting.
“Her uncle told her if she wrote to the Queen then she would get a letter back," said Sam.
“She wrote a letter asking if she could come to her school and visit her class. She also asked her what food she liked – but she didn’t reply to that bit.
“She also drew a picture of her and the Queen holding hands and a crown on her head.”
