Queen Elizabeth II 👑 . The Queen does not intend to abdicate, though Prince Charles is expected to take on more of her duties as Elizabeth, who celebrated her 94th birthday in 2020, carries out fewer public engagements. . On 20 April 2018, the government leaders of the Commonwealth of Nations announced that she will be succeeded by Charles as head of the Commonwealth. The Queen stated it was her "sincere wish" that Charles would follow her in the role. . . .
Timothy Madders hailing from Billericay in Essex, UK made a word search with hidden words like ‘smile”, ‘family’, ‘holiday’ among other positive words. Along with the puzzle, he wrote a letter to her at the beginning of May, saying, “Dear Queen Elizabeth, You might be feeling sad or lonely during the lockdown, so I thought I could make a word search for you to cheer you up. Love from Timothy Madders.”
And surprisingly, the Queen obliged his sweet gesture and even wrote a ‘thank you note’ for him. Timothy recently received a reply from Windsor Castle. In the letter written by the Queen’s lady-in-waiting, Philippa de Pass, the Queen appreciated his thoughtfulness.
The seven-year-old said that he felt ‘very special and happy and excited’ on receiving a reply from the monarch. “It was very good [the letter] and it was very important and made me happy that she liked it. She’s probably wanting to keep herself busy,” Timothy said.
His mom Jo Madders said he wanted to do something to cheer her up, reported BBC. “He sent it (the puzzle) with a letter saying how she might be feeling sad or lonely because of lockdown. He picked ‘happiness’ as a theme because he wanted words that would make people think of happy things as they did it.”
Timothy and his family have been making copies of the puzzle and sharing it with people to make them happy. “He kept saying to me not to send the original to anyone else because that was for the Queen. He’s always thinking about other people,” added Madders.
Wow! It’s heartwarming to see this little boy being so empathetic towards others. This is definitely the sweetest and most positive piece of news I have heard in a while.
