  • Lost toy monkey makes Buckingham Palace return to Australia
Sharjah24 – Reuters: A toy monkey that was accidentally left behind at Buckingham Palace by a five-year-old girl, has returned home to Australia with a royal stamp of approval.
Harriet, one of six toy monkeys from Woodside Kindergarten in Adelaide, was taken on holidays to Europe by Savannah Hart and her family when it was misplaced.

Savannah's mother, Katie, realised Harriet was missing the next day bur was unable to locate the toy monkey before they returned home to Australia.

Staff members from Woodside Kindergarten took up the hunt and penned a letter to the Queen, politely asking her to search for the beloved monkey. They also added photos of Harriet's travels from across the world.

Surprisingly the next week the Palace responded, saying that Harriet was in good care and for good measure included photos of Harriet's adventures around the Queen's residence.

Harriet soon arrived back in Australia with a new friend in tow - 'Rex' - a stuffed corgi from the palace gift shop, a friendly addition to the Kindergarten's toy collection.
