I just received a postcard from my nephew thanking me for all the stamps I keep sending him. He stuck a green stamp of the Queen in the corner and wrote “Hears what Britans stamps look like not very exiting we have got a cuple of fansy ones but most of them have just got the Qweens head on. Whos your qween or king?” So I have just written back explaining that here in France they don’t put the king’s head on stamps; instead they put it in the guillotine and chop it off. I am not sure that this is an appropriate answer for a (nearly) eight year old but it will definitely get him interested in French history. I also informed him that the last king was called Louis-Philippe. He was a young chap who ran away and lived out his life in exile in England. I assume he met a nice young woman and had a baby or two with her while there, so there must now be a few Brits with rights to the French throne. I advise you to keep it under your hat. Your head too.
