"God Bless the Queen": Oshkosh Woman Hears Back From Queen Elizabeth

From the WFRV Digital Desk

OSHKOSH, Wis. (WFRV) - The Queen thanks you very much for the message you sent for Christmas.

These are the words Anne Peralta of Oshkosh was greeted with after receiving a letter from Buckingham Palace. 

"It had been months and months since I sent the card and I didn't know what it was," says Peralta.

In December, Peralta sent a Christmas card to Queen Elizabeth. She says she decided to send it because of a background of royal names in the family. 

"I'm Anne, like Queen Anne."

The card Peralta sent included a generic line: "Wishing you a blessed holiday season." Peralta added, "God Bless the Queen" to make it more personable. 

Will she send another one next year?

"No, I don't think so," says Anne, explaining this was precious enough.

For now, the letter is being stored in Peralta's memory book, which includes memories from trips with her late husband.
