Queen Responds To Indo-British Boy’s Birthday Invite

LONDON – British Queen Elizabeth II responded to a letter written by a four-year-old Indo-British boy inviting her to his fifth birthday party as he felt she was like a “real superhero”.

Shaan Dulay was planning a party on June 25 and asked his mother Baljinder to arrange a meeting with the 91-year-old Queen so that she could arrange a trip to his home in Sandwell, West Midlands in England.

When his mother said the Queen might be busy at Buckingham Palace, Shaan suggested “maybe she can come here instead”, the metro.co.uk reported. His letter reads: “Dear HRH Queen Elizabeth, I think you are the best Queen in the world. I really like your crown and the red cloak you wear; it’s like a superhero.” He then requests her attendance at his party before adding: “I need to talk to you about horses, planes and the poor children.”

But after writing the invite on March 13, the boy had begun to lose hope when a letter with the Royal seal arrived on May 3. The letter on behalf of the Queen reads: “Although unable to accept your invitation because of her very busy schedule, the Queen greatly appreciated your kind thought for her and was pleased to learn that you too like horses. The Queen hopes you have a very happy birthday on June 25,” it read.

“When I picked up Shaan from school I said to him, there’s been a letter come for you today, and he just said, ‘Oh, from the Queen?’”, Shaan’s mother said.

Shaan, living with his mum, a probation officer, dad Onhar, 39, a coach driving instructor, and one-year-old brother Roshan said: “I was a bit disappointed, but very happy she read my letter.”
