A Right Royal Do

On Saturday 2nd June 2012 Helen Geddes and Isobel Forsyth the proprietors of The Grapevine held a Jubilee celebration for The Queens Diamond Jubilee supporting her 60 years on the throne. Most of the local British ex-pats turned out some even looking like the royal family, bringing with them a selection of sweet and savoury delicacies. Local singer Al Diamond provided the musical entertainment until late evening.

Gary and Julie McLean who were holidaying in Partaloa were so impressed with this celebration they wrote to the Queen to inform her of the party and the fun it provided for all.

They were surprised when the Queen wrote back, On Balmoral Castle headed note paper a with a Diamond Jubilee memento with photographs depicting the Queen throughout her reign.

However Helen and Izzie were even more surprised when the Queen wrote to them at The Grapevine in Piedra Amerilla with a personal note on Buckingham Palace headed note paper thanking them for their support.

Helen and Izzie expressed delight and surprise at the Royal reply.

Helen said “It is amazing that the Queen took the time to write back to Gary and Julie and fantastic that she should go that extra mile to write to thank Izzie and I, It really makes you feel important, it is not every day you get a letter from the Queen. It really lifts your spirits”.

Izzie said “I have never felt so proud and humble that the Queen took the time to write to us, I will be framing her letter and photos from that celebration in the Grapevine so that all those people who attended and made for a fantastic day can share in the Queens response”
