A one-year-old captured royal attention after dressing up as Her Majesty and her corgis.
An one-year-old caught royal attention after donning an adorable double-breasted overcoat with a matching hat, a white wig and pearls around her neck.
Jalayne Sutherland was photographed by her mum, Katelyn Sutherland, standing alongside her family corgis. The Ohio mum sent the photograph to the Queen on a whim – and said she did not expect to receive a reply, The Sun reports.
She told Her Majesty the biggest inspiration for the outfit was the fact that the dogs were her daughter’s best friends.
“We wanted to do something where they could all be included together. We are most definitely fans of the Royal family and truly admire how the Queen walks by faith,” she said.
Katelyn said her daughter’s costume was met with lots of praise as she took her trick-or-treating on Halloween this year.
She added: “While walking around on Halloween we received many, many compliments but my favourite reactions were when people bowed to her or did the royal wave and said, ‘Your Majesty!’”
The letter, from the Queen’s lady in waiting the Hon Marry Morrison, said: “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.
“Her Majesty hopes you all have a very Merry Christmas, and I am enclosing a little information about the Royal Pets, which Jalayne might like to have.”
