Christmas isn't just about writing a letter to Santa Claus. If you're enamored with the British monarchy, here's some good news for you - you can also send them a letter. However, rather than begging for gifts, you can send a merry Christmas wish to the crowned heads.

Are you unsure about where to send your letter to Santa Claus? Whether it's Lapland or the North Pole, children ponder this question every year. While we can't provide the correct address for Santa, we can guide you on how to send a letter to the British Royals. Excitingly, you might even land a response.

A Royal-style Christmas

During the holiday season, the world's eyes are on the Royals. They captivate with their elegance and give glimpses into their Christmas preparations. Interestingly, one essential part of their annual festivities is receiving letters from all over the globe.

Sending wishes? Remember these guidelines

Start by selecting the right card you wish to send. This could be an opportunity to express your admiration for an artist you appreciate. The card doesn't necessarily have to follow a specific theme, but it shouldn't be inappropriate either.

Next, choose a designated postal address, depending on whom you wish to send the card to:

  • King Charles III and Queen Camilla

Buckingham Palace, London, SW1A 1AA


  • William and Catherine

The Prince and Princess of Wales, Clarence House, London, SW1A 1BA

Here are the addresses for some other members of the royal family:

  • Edward and Sophie

The Duke and Duchess of Edinburgh, Bagshot Park, Bagshot, Surrey GU19 5PL

      Buckingham Palace, London, SW1A 1AA

  • Princess Eugenie
  • Princess Anne

Buckingham Palace, London, SW1A 1AA

  • Princess Beatrice

Buckingham Palace, London, SW1A 1AA

  • Sarah, Duchess of York

London, SW1A 1AA

Use appropriate salutations on your cards. If you're writing to King Charles III, begin with "Your Majesty" (The King) or "Sir". When addressing other members of the royal family, use salutations like "Your Royal Highness" or "Madam". Conclude your card with "Yours sincerely" and include your full name.

What content to include? That's entirely up to you, however, bear in mind that the wishes should be concise and heartfelt.

Interested in getting a reply? Don't overlook this detail!

Make sure to clearly write your return address on both the envelope and card. Your address will direct where a potential response should be sent. The sooner you mail your wishes, the higher the possibility of receiving a response by Christmas. If not, you may have to wait until around Easter.
