How to write to The Queen

You can write to Her Majesty at the following address:

Her Majesty The Queen
Buckingham Palace
London SW1A 1AA 

If you wish to write a formal letter, you can open with 'Madam' and close the letter with the form 'I have the honour to be, Madam, Your Majesty's humble and obedient servant'. 

This traditional approach is by no means obligatory. You should feel free to write in whatever style you feel comfortable.

As a constitutional Monarch, Her Majesty does not intervene in any political or personal disputes, and letters asking her to do so will receive a standard reply to this effect. For security reasons, the Correspondence Team are unable to accept any unsolicited gifts which are sent to The Queen.
