A seven-year-old schoolgirl shared her joy after the Queen thanked her for sending her a condolence card after Prince Philip’s death.
Francesca Woodcock, from Darlington, felt sorry for the Queen after learning that the Duke of Edinburgh had passed away last month and worried she would be alone.
So she took the pen to paper and wrote the monarch a letter which she sent to Buckingham Palace.
Francesca, sharing a birthday with the monarch, was delighted to receive an answer that read, “I would like to thank you for your kind sympathy for the death of my husband. Elizabeth R ‘.

Francesca’s mom Stefanie Woodcock, 40, said her daughter has always been ‘caring and considerate’.
‘We didn’t really expect to receive anything.
“She wants to call the queen now – but I don’t think I can save her, unfortunately.
She had made a card and wanted to send it to the Queen to apologize for Prince Philip’s death.
Her love for the royal family started when she was about three years old, and she has loved the Queen and Buckingham Palace ever since.
“I think she’ll be sending more letters in the future because she’s very caring.”
Francesca, seven, is left with her sister, Eleanor, 9, and the card they received from He Majesty
She added, “She said she wanted Philip to see the map, but I had to explain to her that he had died so he couldn’t see it.
Her wording on the card comes across as meaningful, but in a strange way – she means well what she says.
She wrote to the queen, “I’m sorry your husband passed away, Francesca’s sweetheart,” so it’s very direct. “
Stefanie said Francesca thinks it is ‘very special’ that she shares a birthday with the Queen.
She added: ‘I asked her if she wanted to tell the newspaper anything, and she said she wanted to give the Queen one more message that is again very direct –
The queen was depicted at Prince Philip’s funeral last month. He died in Windsor Castle in April, aged 99
“I hope you are happy now that your husband has passed away.” ‘
But she meant it kindly, because now the Queen is on her own and she felt so sorry for her.
But she’s very thoughtful – she’s only seven and she’s the most caring and sweetest child ever. She knows life and is very empathetic.
When I said that Prince Phillip had died, the first thing she said was, ‘the queen is alone, the poor queen’ ‘
‘It is wonderful to get something back from them.
‘It’s short, but it’s very special – when I saw it had a Buckingham Palace postmark on the envelope, I thought’ wow ‘.
“We are very proud of her and she said” Mommy, I am proud of myself “- and she should be.”
