After seeing a lovely photograph of a toddler costumed as Her Majesty, the Queen has sent an unexpected response. One-year-old Jalayne Sutherland attracted royal attention when she wore an attractive double-breasted jacket. She also wore a matching bonnet, a white wig, and pearls around her neck.
Her mother, Katelyn Sutherland, took a shot of her with her family's corgis. Katelyn is from Ohio, America and dressed her daughter as the Queen. She sent the snapshot to the Queen on the spur of the moment, saying she did not expect any response.
When Katelyn took her kid trick-or-treating this year, she said her daughter's costume received a lot of compliments. On being asked the inspiration behind the Queen themed dress, she added,
The biggest inspiration for the outfit was the fact that our dogs are our daughter's best friends.
We wanted to do something where they could all be included together. We are most definitely fans of the Royal family and truly admire how the Queen walks by faith.
Even the people around her took part in her small role play. Katelyn further added,
While walking around on Halloween we received many, many compliments but my favourite reactions were when people bowed to her or did the royal wave and said, ‘Your Majesty!’
The Queen responded to the toddler through one of her Ladies in Waiting, who stated that Her Majesty was pleased with the photo and that the dress was splendid. The letter that Jalayne received was dated December 9, 2021, and was stamped with the Windsor Castle emblem.
According to the letter, which was written by the Queen's lady in waiting for the Hon Marry Morrison read,
The Queen wishes me to write and thank you for your letter, and for the photograph you thoughtfully enclosed.
Her Majesty thought it kind of you to write to her, and The Queen was pleased to see the photograph of your daughter, Jalayne, in her splendid outfit.
Since Jalayne was photographed next to Queen’s favourite breed of dogs, the letter also had information about her pets.
Her Majesty hopes you all have a very Merry Christmas, and I am enclosing a little information about the Royal Pets, which Jalayne might like to have.
