I have written a letter to the queen and I’d like you to read it. When you have read it, answer some questions. You can look back at the letter any time to help you.

Dear Queen,

I would like to become a princess. I have worked hard at school and am now in Year 2. I have learned how to ballroom dance and can even play the recorder. I think I should be a princess because I have a wonderful pink, frilly dress and orange shoes. My hair is blonde and long and a tiara would look amazing on top of my head. I don’t really want to marry a prince but do want to live in a palace. I’ll even be happy if you just give me one of your castles. Let me know what you think.

Yours sincerely,
