       Many people ask about the history of Royal Mail(英国皇家邮政). Do you know about it? Royal Mail is a public mail delivery company in the U.K. The company has been around for about 500 years.
  Royal Mail is perhaps one of the oldest delivery companies in the world. It was set up in 1516 by Henry VIII(亨利八世). He wanted to make sure that important letters were delivered between London and Edinburgh(爱丁堡), so he could keep control over both England and Scotland(苏格兰).
  In 1635, Charles I(查理一世) opened up the post service to the public. But at that time, the costs for mailing a letter were a bit different than today. The sender should pay for the postage(邮费), and the receiver of the letter should also pay money to get it.
  Royal Mail has a long history, and grew up very fast. Nowit delivers millions of letters and different kinds of packages(包裹) in the U.K. every day.
