Little Skye Corry took it upon herself to write a letter to Her Majesty The Queen requesting a day off for her brother-in-law to attend a family wedding.
Skye’s sister, Sophie Bexon, lives in Germany with her husband who is serving with 26th Regiment Royal Artillery.
She travelled from Germany to spend time with little Skye for her birthday, but her husband was unable to make it.
Ten-year-old Skye quizzed her family whether he would be able to make the upcoming wedding, but her family wanted to surprise her so said they weren’t sure.
This prompted Skye to spring into action. She knew her brother-in-law was on guard duties at Buckingham Palace so she decided to write a letter to the Queen in an attempt to make sure she’ll get to see him.
"She doesn't miss a trick!"
The letter starts with a very formal “May it please your majesty…”
Skye then goes on to explain that her brother-in-law is currently on guard duties at Buckingham Palace with his regiment and that she hasn’t seen him for 9 months because he’s based in Germany with 26th Regiment Royal Artillery.
She also notes that it is her birthday today and she “will be the grand age of 10” and to see him “would be the best birthday present in the world.”
Urgh. That got us right in the feels!
The letter is signed off with a very grown-up “With kind regards and best wishes to your Majesty”.
Skye went to school on her birthday very excited to tell all her friends about the letter to Queen.
We’re very impressed with Skye’s letter writing skills and look forward to reading the Queen’s response.
