Have You Ever Had a Letter From Someone Famous?

What prompted this blog post was the fact that I had received an email from John Suchet on Classic FM.

I had written to him via the site but it said not to expect a reply and I was very surprised when one turned up.

This got me to thinking about all the letters I, and members of my family had received from famous people.


My mother's father, my granddad was a blacksmith cum farrier.  He shod all the huge shire horses used by the brewery.  My mother would sit on the backs of these gentle giants as they were being shod.

My sister was born 'with horses in her blood'.  However I was and still am scared of horses.  I am not that bad with the bigger horses and shires but the smaller the horse, the more frightened I am.

When we were young we played at 'horses' at every opportunity.  We watched cowboy films as well.  Then, one day my sister wrote a letter to Roy Rogers.  She addressed the envelope - Roy Rogers, America.

And, lo and behold, she got a reply!  We were all absolutely flabbergasted to receive a letter from the very famous Roy Rogers!


My dad often wrote to MPs and Prime Ministers about how the world could be changed.  He also wrote to the manager of Morrisons once to explain how they could make better use of their car park, entry and exit.  He was a very clever man and was always thinking of how to do something either better or easier.


I have written to a number of well known people in my time and I have also been surprised to receive replies;

Uri Geller

Betty Shine

Sebastian Coe

Tony Blair

John Major

Margaret Thatcher

Prince Philip

to name just a few.

Sometimes the replies were hand written, as in the case of Uri Geller and sometimes a secretary would have typed out the letter and signed it on someone's behalf or the person in question may have signed it.


Two members of my family have actually received invitations to Buckingham Palace to see the Queen and to attend her garden party.


Have you ever written to someone famous?
