Jalayne’s mother, Katelyn Sutherland sent a letter and some pictures of the toddler in the cute outfit to Buckingham Palace in London. What took the family by surprise was the response that they received from the British Royal.
Sutherlands received the letter from the Queen which came with the Windsor Castle insignia and was dated December 9, 2021 from the Queen’s lady-in-waiting, the Hon. Mary Morrison. The letter read, “The Queen wishes me to write and thank you for your letter, and for the photograph you thoughtfully enclosed. Her Majesty thought it kind of you to write to her, and The Queen was pleased to see the photograph of your daughter, Jalayne, in her splendid outfit.”
