A wonderful and well deserved honour for Livvy!

But did she get the telegram as well?

I don't believe so, because she is an American citizen with a joint US/French Passport.

She was a British subject when she was born in 1916, which is why the Queen has awarded her the Damehood and why she will be entitled to style herself Dame Olivia, but only British Citizens living in the UK qualify for the telegram on reaching 100 (and in fact get one for each year they live after that!)

I am hoping she will make the trip to London for the Investiture, though I suspect the honour may be bestowed at the British Embassy in Paris. She does not like to travel any more, since her eyesight failed.
