It turned out that the recently deceased Queen of Great Britain Elizabeth the Second 70 years of correspondence with a native of North Dakota (UNITED STATES).

Despite such a long communication, the women never saw each other live.

First letter Adele Hankey sent to the queen in the year of her coronation. It turned out that women have something in common – they were born on the same day, April 21, 1926.

The American decided that this fact was a good reason to turn to the monarch with a request. According to Hankey, she asked Elizabeth II for a hat and was even sure she would get it.

The miracle did not happen and the North Dakota resident had to be left without a royal headdress. But the queen answered the letter. I even put my photo in the envelope.

Every year since then, Elizabeth II sends a handwritten message to her American counterpart for her birthday.

In letters, women most often discussed culinary issues.

The recipes that the queen liked were with marmalade. And so am I,” Hankey told reporters, adding that she misses her pen pal very much.
