Never seen before letters sent by the Queen and Prince Charles are being auctioned off for £80,000.
The extraordinary messages received by Michael Farebrother over the course of 40 years cover a range of topics from royal deaths to a former gym mistress with large thighs.
Mr Farebrother's complete stash of correspondence from the monarch and Charles, who he once privately tutored, is up for sale 34 years after his death.
Whoever buys the collection of archive material will also snap up 26 candid photographs the former Grenadier Guard took of the Royal family, mostly in the 1950s.
For an expected £80,000 someone will land an exclusive insight into life inside the Royal household across the 20th century as told by the Queen herself.
News of the letters being listed for sale but we have been given a flavour as to what was discussed in the letters.
Between them the Queen and son Prince Charles react to the deaths of King George VI in 1952 and Louie Mountbatten in 1979.
A letter from the Queen to Michael Farebrother a week after her father's death, thanks him for his sympathies.
The letter has a black border to signify the Queen is in mourning and is the first letter to Michael as Queen signed 'Elizabeth R' in 1952.
On the other end of the spectrum, less heavy topics such as rock and roll music and the large thighs of a former gym mistress promise to amuse the lucky reader.
Auction house Gorringe's say they "are privileged" to offer The Michael Farebrother collection of ‘Papers Concerning H.M The Queen & Her Family’ to the highest bidder next month.
