Queen's Irish visit gets stamp of approval
Buckingham palce inundated with mail
The Queen’s visit to Ireland last month has broken new records – for the amount of mail sent to Buckingham Palace in response to the trip.
British Ambassador to Ireland Julian King has revealed that the English monarchy has received more correspondence in relation to the trip than from any other royal visit during the Queen’s reign.
King told the Irish Times that both the British embassy in Dublin and the Irish Embassy in London received large numbers of letters from people expressing their satisfaction with the visit.
Buckingham Palace officials have also reported an unprecedented volume of correspondence.
“The Palace say that they had more letters following this visit than they have had for any other royal visit during her reign,” said ambassador King.
“They’ve had thousands of letters from all around the world commenting on the visit.
“Most powerfully, some of these letters were from Irish citizens who live in Britain and many of them
followed the visit and were deeply touched by what they saw and had been moved by what they saw to write.”
King added that the Irish community in Britain was clearly impressed with the enthusiasm the Queen displayed during her first visit to the Republic.
“They are also proud of the way Ireland welcomed her,” he concluded.
