Manner Monday®: The Duke and Duchess

As seen on:
by Carey Sue Vega in Duke and Duchess, Etiquette

I’m just returning from England and the opportunity of a lifetime…

My Aunt, Sister and I attended a fundraiser for the East Anglia Children’s Hospice with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.  It was a small, intimate, affair with 80 people in attendance for dinner at Houghton Hall in Norfolk, England.

We stayed in the castle where the fundraiser took place so I was able to snap a few pictures of last minute preparations before the event started.

And I was lucky enough to be seated at the same table with Duke and Duchess.

During the event, we were not allowed to take photos.  Once I’m able to get official pictures from the committee, I’ll share.

In the meantime, here is the link to an article that ran in the local Norfolk paper the day after the event.

Do you have a ‘manner’ or question you would like to see covered in a post?  Feel free to send me your thoughts, I would love to hear from you.

My goal is to help my students to feel more comfortable and confident in the social and professional skills; do you know someone who would enjoy this post?  If so, please share it and encourage them to sign up to receive Manner Monday?  I would appreciate it!  And if you’re new to Manner Monday, I’d love for you to take a minute to learn more about why I started it. You can click here to read my very first post that tells all about it.

Thanks for reading!
