Boy Gets A Note From The Queen After She Finds A Balloon He Released
Charlie Castle was one of about 50 school children who released balloons during an end-of-term farewell at his school near High Wycombe in July.
After the Queen came across it in the grounds of Windsor Castle she penned the boy telling him that she "so happy it was your balloon she found".
When the envelope arrived, the little boy also found his green balloon tucked inside.
The letter, which was sent by the Queen's personal assistant, Angela Kelly, read:
Fifteen balloons were returned to the school, the furthest from Bordeaux in south-west France.
