- 7-year-old boy Timothy that the Queen might be bored during lockdown so he created a word-search puzzle and set it to her.
- He was amazed when he received a reply from Windsor Castle by one of the Queen’s ladies-in-waiting Philippa de Pass.
- He said the reply letter made him “feel special and happy.”
Little Timothy Madders decided to send the Queen a word-search puzzle that he created himself to keep her majesty entertained while in lockdown — and he was surprised with delight to receive a reply from the royal staff.
The witty 7-year-old boy from Billericay, Essex, created the happiness-themed puzzle to ease the Queen’s boredom. He exerted effort to handwrite the game which has hidden words like “happiness,” “sunshine,” “family”, and “love.”
Astonishingly, he received a letter back from one of the ladies-in-waiting thanking him of his thoughtful gift.
The letter was dated on July 3rd and signed by Philippa de Pass.
It reads: “Dear Timothy, The Queen wishes me to write and thank you for your kind letter, and for the puzzle you have created especially for Her Majesty.”
“Your thoughtfulness is greatly appreciated,” says the letter. “The Queen hopes that you too are keeping safe and well in the current situation.”
Jo Madders, Timothy’s mum, said her son has always been thoughtful of other people.
“He wanted to do something to cheer her up and he did it in his neatest handwriting,” Jo told the BBC.
“He kept saying to me not to send the original to anyone else because that was for the Queen.”
Timothy said it took him one day to make the puzzle and he sent it back in May.
He said he felt “special and happy” to receive the letter from Windsor Castle. “I wanted the Queen to be happy, I was trying to think of what to do to cheer her up.”
