A SCHOOLGIRL from Solihull has received a royal reply to her congratulatory letter to the Queen.

A SCHOOLGIRL from Solihull has received a royal reply to her congratulatory letter to the Queen.

Katie Butler, from Yew Tree School, had written to the Queen ahead of the Diamond Jubilee to congratulate her Majesty on her birthday and 60 happy years on the throne.

She had almost given up on receiving a reply until the regal replay arrived at her school this week, thanking the 10-year-old for her ‘words of loyalty and support’.

Mum Jackie, a teacher at her daughter’s primary, said she was ‘very proud’ of Katie, who had come up with the idea to pen the message herself.

Her family are now planning to frame the reply and put it in pride of place in the youngster’s room.
