IT’S not often a letter drops through the letter box franked with the Royal postmark.

But one lucky youngster found just that when the postman came with the usual household mail.

The letter to Mollie Burns Bragg was from Kate Middleton who sent it to thank the seven-year-old for a special picture she drew.

When Kate became engaged to HRH Prince William, Mollie and a couple of her friends decided to wish them well by drawing pictures of Kate wearing her wedding dress.

And in true princess style, Mollie drew a picture of Kate wearing a sparkling dress in gold and yellow with a full skirt and train.

Her picture obviously made a huge impression on the Royal bride-to-be.

Said Mollie, of Heathfield Road, Fleetwood: “I was really pleased to get the letter, but at first I thought it was an invitation to the wedding!

“But I’m looking forward to the Royal Wedding and I’ll be watching it on the telly with all the family.”

The letter was sent from St James Palace and thanked Mollie for her picture saying Kate really liked it.

Mollie, who attends Chaucer Primary School in Fleetwood, has a little brother called Robbie, who is five and they are both looking forward to taking part in activities to celebrate the big day at school.

Youngsters from all over Fleetwood will be taking part in special activities to mark the big occasion.

The Royal couple will be married at Westminster Abbey on April 29 in what is being called the “wedding of the year”, and they are reported to have invited 1,900 guests to the ceremony.

The big occasion has been declared an official bank holiday in the UK.

After the wedding the Royal couple will return to Buckingham Palace and the Queen will hold a reception for the couple and their guests.

Afterwards, The Prince of Wales will host a private diner dance.
