Lorde flew back to her homeland Tuesday like a conquering hero -- armed with 2 Grammy Awards ... and a ridiculously nice handwritten thank you to her fellow Kiwis.
Lorde took out a full page in the New Zealand Herald for the note -- fresh off winning Song of the Year and Best Pop Solo Performance.
Gotta say ... the 17-year-old scribbled a pretty damn charming note: "Without your support, there's no way I would ever have gotten to stand in the middle of the Staples Centre & perform in my school shoes."
You can call her Queen Bee.
Lorde to NZ
I'm Back, Bitches ...
With 2 Freakin' Grammys!
