Q:

What is the proper way to address a letter to the British Prime Minister?

A:

The proper way to address the British Prime Minister in a letter is to begin by calling him or her "The Honourable." If he or she is a member of the Privy Council of the United Kingdom, he or she should be addressed as "The Right Honourable."

When writing the address of the Prime Minister, it should include "The Honourable" followed by Prime Minister and his or her name. The next line should note the Prime Minister, followed by a line noting the Office of the Prime Minister. The address should follow after that.

Within the letter, the salutation should be noted to "Madam or Sir" followed by Prime Minister and his or her name.

    Who was the British Prime Minister during World War II?

    A:

    At the outbreak of World War II, which was sparked by the 1939 German invasion of Poland, Neville Chamberlain was the prime minister of the United Kingdom; he was succeeded by Winston Churchill in 1940, who remained prime minister until July 1945. Clement Attlee replaced Churchill as prime minister in July 1945 and, although the war was technically still ongoing at that point, Attlee is not considered to be a wartime prime minister. The United Kingdom had suspended elections during the war, and elections were not held again until Germany had surrendered.
