Royal Mail gets it right -- to Kate

By Autumn Brewington

We are totally charmed by this People magazine report on the "steady stream" of mail to Kate Middleton's family home since she and Prince William announced their engagement in November.

Postman Ryan Naylor told the magazine that the mail "they've had is absolutely incredible, from all over the world. ... There are lots of well-wishers, sending cards and presents." (That would presumably be wedding presents, but gifts for Kate's recent 29th birthday are also possible.)

So, what do we find so appealing? That Britain's Royal Mail is delivering all this even when some mail is addressed to such amorphous locations as "Catherine Middleton, England."

"There was one this morning to 'Mike and Carole Middleton, Parents of Catherine Middleton, Bucklebury, Berkshire,'" Naylor told the magazine. And "some of it's just addressed to Kate Middleton, England, but it still gets here surprisingly."

Surprising, indeed. This feels like the royal-watching equivalent of writing to Santa Claus, North Pole -- which is why the postman's comments that the mail is reaching the Middletons are so nice.
