To prove that Royal Mail takes ROYAL MAIL very seriously: The Duke’s office kindly sent a letter of thanks to the Subway team. Any regular letter would have had practically no chance of finding us – but this one did because it was franked by the Buckingham Palace post office.

Ultimately it found its way to the Crystal Palace Park Rangers who tracked me down.
