When Katelyn dress her daughter up as a queen Elizabeth II, she didn’t expect to receive a letter from Windsor soon. It turned out that the charming photo went to the queen, who appreciated the efforts of the young mother and the effect of the photo shoot.
Katelyn Sutherland from Ohio (USA) is the mother of Jalayne, 2 years old. On the occasion of the platinum jubilee of Elizabeth II, the woman decided to dress her daughter as queen and take a photo of her.
It shows a girl in an elegant coat, hat, wig and jewelry, and two corgi (the queen’s favorite breed): Jack and Rascal.
“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.” – Katelyn explains.
She 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 letter, from the Queen’s lady in waiting the Hon Marry Morrison, said: “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.
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.”
The letter was stamped with the Windsor Castle insignia.
