King Juan Carlos & Queen Sofia of Spain - Christmas Reply (2018)

A lovely reply arrived over the weekend from Spain. I had written to King Juan Carlos & Queen Sofia in early December to wish them a Merry Christmas.

The envelope is the usual from the couple. 

Inside is a letter from King Juan Carlos's Head Secretariat, Alfonso Sanz Portolés. The letter is pretty identical to the ones I've received for Christmas from the couple in past years, although the message is slightly different. 

The letter reads:
Household of H.M. The King  

The Head Secretariat of H.M. King Juan Carlos
Palace of Zarzuela (The couple's official residence)

January 30th, 2019 

Ms. Gertrude Alexandra Daly(My Address) 

The Head Secretariat of H.M. King Juan Carlos, 

Their Majesties King Juan Carlos and Queen Sofia, have appreciated very much the kind Christmas greeting that they have received, and they ask me to send you their sincere gratitude along with their best wishes for the new year. 

I take this opportunity to wish you a prosperous 2019. 

Alfonso Sanz Portolés
