[Well, I actually sent the following email to the Royal Household but you get the idea.]
I am visiting London this Saturday. It will be my fourth visit to London, I will be flying from Aberdeen (where I live) and staying the night. I wanted to get the Sleeper Train but it was cheaper to fly! Can you believe that? Well, I suppose that’s what happens when you leave things to the last minute.
I was wondering if it would be possible for me to stay over (sleep-over, if you prefer) at Buckingham Palace on Saturday night (25th June)? The last time I visited London I stayed in Kings Cross which was quite nice but I ate some bad prawns. When I say I ate some bad prawns I didn’t get ill, but they had the black line in them which I believe is their poo tract – at least that’s what the narrator on Come Dine With Me is always saying!
So yes, I’d really like to stay at Buckingham Palace. I got my photo taken there last time and it seemed lovely. Also, I am a people person so I wouldn’t mind the crowds and I could even do some waving on the Queen’s behalf.
Please confirm that I can stay as soon as possible so I can tell my family!
