Dear Prince Philip,

I am glad to hear you are doing better. I once had a bladder infection and it was no laughing matter! I hope neither of us ever get one again.

A good friend of mine, and one of your subjects —a young man by the name of Ned Donovan— is a huge fan of yours. Ned’s done a few nice things for me over the years (he once sent me a bag of Quavers crisps since we don’t have these in my country), so I would like to do something nice for Ned in return.

I figure since Ned’s too polite of a lad to ask for himself I would write to find out if I could get an autographed photo. If you send it to the address above I promise I’ll make sure he gets it. I once asked your wife for a photo, but her Senior Correspondence Officer, Mrs. Sonia Bonici, said she only gives them out to people she knows. I’m hoping you don’t have such a policy. I would hate to disappoint Ned.

Sincerely,

Christopher L. Jorgensen

p.s. my father is named Philip, but he’s not a prince.

Dear Mr Jorgensen

The Duke of Edinburgh has asked me to write and thank you for your letter dated 31st August.

As you rightly point out in your letter, members of the Royal Family make it a rule not to send their autographs, so I am sorry that it will not be possible for His Royal Highness to do as you ask. I hope you will understand.

Thank you once again for your trouble in writing and Prince Philip sends you his best wishes for the future.

Yours Sincerely

Richard Hutton

Mr. Christopher L. Jorgensen
