An adorable toddler received a letter from Windsor Castle after dressing up as the Queen and posing with her two corgis.

Jalayne Sutherland caught royal attention after putting on a double-breasted overcoat with matching hat, a white wig and pearls.

She was photographed by her mum, Katelyn Sutherland, standing alongside her family corgis, Jack and Rascal.

Katelyn, from Ohio, America, sent the picture to the Queen on a whim – and said she did not expect to receive a reply, reports Nottimghamshire Live.

It comes ahead of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations, which start on Thursday and finish with a huge People’s Pageant, which will see 100 “national treasures” from the worlds of British sports, arts and television travel through the city on buses.

More than 10,000 people will be sharing the spotlight on the pageant including multi-award winning British musician Ed Sheeran.

The show will also involve 2,750 military personnel, more than 6,000 volunteers, performers, key workers and 2,500 members of the general public.

Mum Katelyn said: “The biggest inspiration for the outfit was the fact that our dogs are our 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.”

Katelyn said her daughter’s costume was met with lots of praise as she took her trick-or-treating last Halloween.

She added: “While walking around on Halloween we received many, many compliments but my favorite 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.”

The letter was stamped with the Windsor Castle insignia and dated December 9, 2021.
