Information on where to write to The King or another member of the Royal Family, and how to contact an office or department in the Royal Household

Writing to The King

The King is shown almost all of his correspondence on a daily basis by one of his Private Secretaries, and he takes a keen interest in the letters he receives. 

How to write to The King

You can write to His Majesty at the following address:

His Majesty The King

Buckingham Palace

London SW1A 1AA 

If you wish to write a formal letter, you can open with 'Sir' and close the letter with the form 'I have the honour to be, Sir, Your Majesty's humble and obedient servant'. 

This traditional approach is by no means obligatory. You should feel free to write in whatever style you feel comfortable.

Correspondence which will not receive a response

As a constitutional Monarch, His Majesty does not intervene in any political or personal disputes, and letters asking him to do so will receive a standard reply to this effect.

For security reasons, the Correspondence Team are unable to accept any unsolicited gifts which are sent to The King.
