A schoolboy has sent the Queen a word search in case she is feeling “sad or lonely” during lockdown.

Seven-year-old Timothy Madders, of Billericay in Essex, created his “happiness word search” with hidden words including “smile”, “family”, “holiday” and “sunshine”.

He wrote: “Dear Queen Elizabeth, You might be feeling sad or lonely during lockdown, so I thought I could make a word search for you to cheer you up. Love from Timothy Madders.”

Timothy received a reply from Windsor Castle thanking him for his thoughtfulness.

“Your thoughtfulness is greatly appreciated, and The Queen hopes that you too are keeping safe and well in the current situation.

“I am to thank you very much indeed for writing as you did at this time.”

Timothy said his family had been making word searches during lockdown when he decided to create one for the Queen and post it at the beginning of May.
