AN EIGHT-YEAR-OLD boy from Athersley North has received a letter from the Queen.

Aidan Simpson wrote a letter to Her Majesty in December, wishing her and the Royal family a merry Christmas.

He also sent a picture he had drawn of the Queen walking with her corgis.

Aidan's mum, Donna said: "He only wrote 'Buckingham Palace, London' on the envelope. We sent it but didn't ever think he'd get anything back.
The post came and he saw his name on the envelope. We couldn't believe it."

Aidan says it felt 'amazing' to receive the letter.
He said: "I wanted to write to the Queen because it was the Diamond Jubilee and it was coming up to Christmas."

The response from Her Majesty thanked Aidan for his kind thoughts in his letter.
