Or as you are known, Sir Winston Leonard Spencer-Churchill, Knight of the Order of the Garter (KG), Member of the Order of Merit (OM), Companion of Honour (CH), Privy Council of the United Kingdom (PC), Deputy Lieutenant (DL), Fellow of the Royal Society (FRS), Royal Academician (RA) and Territorially Decorated (TD). It was so difficult to write all of your decorations, you have achieved so many – just kidding, I copy-pasted them.

I know that maybe, but maybe, Romania is a little bit different viewed through your eyes, because you have merely seen it through the means of television, documentaries and news.

I perfectly acknowledge the fact that you don’t speak Romanian, English, German or whatever human language that we speak, you are walking on your four legs, but you have suddenly had my heart. Forever. You never fail to make me smile. You are the ONLY members of the family who are always and faithfully excited to see me. Even when I am not being the most lovable person on this Earth.
