THE QUEEN has sent Kim Jong-un a strange letter in honor of North Korea’s National Day.
After it was revealed that Kim has created a new long-range cruise missile capable of carrying nuclear bombs, Her Majesty’s message came amid worries of World War Three.
The Monarch’s message was only revealed after Pyongyang issued a press release on the dictator’s behalf.
“On September 7, Kim Jong Un, president of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK), received congratulations from Elizabeth II, monarch of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland,” according to a statement released by North Korean state media.
According to the Daily Beast, the message was issued two days before North Korea’s creation day celebration, along with dozens of other messages from world leaders.
“As the people of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea celebrate their National Day, I send my best wishes for the future,” the Queen wrote.
Aidan Foster-Carter, a senior research fellow at Leeds University and a Korea expert, told the outlet that North Korea is a threat “On our queen’s birthday, he always wishes her well, but I’ve never found any indication of a message from us or her to them—until now. So this is fascinating.”
Despite some skepticism, a royal spokeswoman verified that the Queen did send the message to the tyrant for the 73rd time.
