As King Abdullah continues to recover from his recent surgery I have received multiple queries via email on how one can write to a Royal. Where can a letter or a card be mailed? I’m pleased to say that it is really very simple to write to a Royal whether it is to King Abdullah or someone else within the Royal family. Correspondence to any Royal can be addressed and sent in care of the local Saudi Embassy or Consulate in which country one resides. The Embassy or Consulate has a duty to ensure that the correspondence is delivered. Now that being said, of course any correspondence would go through security screening and likely be opened first by a secretary who would then determine on whether the correspondence is passed onward to the Royal. This is very typical of correspondence received among all dignitaries, prominent media figures and executives around the globe.
Letters should be addressed using proper titles and full names. If writing an Ambassador the letter should be addressed to “His Excellency” followed by full name. If writing to King Abdullah the letter should be address “His Majesty” followed by full name. If writing to another Royal the letter should be addressed either His/Her Highness or His/Her Royal Highness followed by full name.
