Nursery school children received a very special delivery when a card dropped through the postbox - from none other than Her Majesty The Queen.

In celebration of The Monarch’s 91st birthday, children at Abbey View Nursery sent their hand-made birthday cards to Buckingham Palace, decorating them with jewels, glitter and gold and silver paint.

Given that Elizabeth II is a little busy with Royal engagements, they did not to get expect anything in return.

However they were delighted when the postman delivered a response from The Queen expressing her recognition and heartfelt thanks.

Headteacher Jeannette Burns said: “We really didn’t expect anything in response. The children were just so excited.
