A frustrated American, who did not like the current field of US presidential candidates, wrote to Queen Elizabeth II asking her to take back control of America. As expected, he got a royal reply in which the Queen turned down his request.

A Reddit user wrote that an ‘Anglophile friend’ addressed the letter to both the Queen and Prime Minister David Cameron. In the letter, he wrote:

“On behalf of the American people, I urgently implore you to take us back. Clearly, the options we have to lead us aren’t up to par. Again, please, I beg of you, make the United States of America a colony of the United Kingdom. For further reasons as to why this is such a necessary, albeit drastic, step, I refer to tonight’s Republican Party Primary debate. Thank you. God save The Queen.”


The letter was sent on September 16, when 11 front-runners for the Republican Presidential nomination had gone head-to-head for three hours on CNN.

The man was shocked when he got the unexpected reply from the Buckingham Palace, wrote his friend.

The Queen’s deputy correspondence coordinator wrote:

“I have been asked to write in response to your recent letter to The Queen in which you express your views about the American government. Whilst your views have been noted, you will appreciate, I am sure, that there can be no question of The Queen intervening in the affairs of another Sovereign state.”


United States was once a colony of England before gaining independence in 1776, during a period history calls the American Revolution.

Well, the Buckingham Palace has earned a reputation for its correspondence. Earlier this year, one of the Queen’s aides replied to a six-year-old girl who invited the monarch to her birthday party.

The response said the Queen “greatly appreciated the thought and hopes you have a lovely time”
