My favorite actor is a CBE( Commander of the British Empire) When I wrote a fan letter to him, the only mention I had to make of his title was to put CBE next to his name on the outside of the envelope while addressing it. His stationary did not have CBE on it. The only times he uses his title are to promote the causes he supports. Groups list him as thier patron like this: Patron: Mr. ( his name),CBE. So he seems very down to earth.

I have seen sample invitations from the Queen of Britain before in books. If she is inviting a Lord/Baron, Lady/Baroness the word Lord, Lady, Baroness, or Baron would appear before thier name. If she is inviting a Knight or a Dame then the word Sir or Dame, would appear before thier name, with the correct abbreviation of their order after thier name. For Commanders and lower ( of any order) it is simply Mr./Miss/Mrs. before thier name and the abbreviation of thier order afterward.

Dinner Protocol

Prince Albert was just visiting Palm Beach and there was a dinner party given for him. If his sister Caroline had been invited as well which one takes precedence. Albert is only a Serene Highhness and sister Caroline who as Princess of Hanover is an HRH and outranks him by Gotha rules. Does this mean Ms Wigstock (Albert's intended) has to curtsy to Caroline and call her ma'm. Even though Albert is a Head of State who goes into dinner first.

In this example their styles are irrelevant. Under both Gotha rules and standard protocol Prince Albert II is a Head of State and therefore has precedence.

Rules/Etiquette at court

I'd very much like to learn of the court rules of Tudor and Elizabethan periods as well as any others. I'd like to know what titles were used, how people would be addressed, the rules for meeting a member of the royal household, etc. When and for whom to bow and/or curtsy. How to enter and leave a room. Etiquette at mealtime....etc. I'm working on a theatre project and I could really use as much help as anyone can offer! Thank you SO much for any advice/information you can share!

Google "Life at the Court of" and you'll find plenty of books and webpages dealing with this topic.
Hope this helps!

Help with a close friends and aids addressing a royal

I'm writing a novel about a prince in a pretend European country of my own imagination but I want to be true to royal protocol -- even though it varies from country to country.

What would a Crown Prince's aid call him? They grew up together, so I think he'd call him by his first name unless they were in public or a formal situation?

What do you all think? Should he be called "sir" even in private?

Probably depends on the age of your crown prince and how formal the protocol is in your fictional country.
With Prince Charles it would have been "Sir", with William it may well be "Wills" if no one else is around but even then that may be a stretch if they are in the office and discussing business.

In reality, I am not sure that a close friend of a crown prince growing up would later become his aid. Royal staff tend to be drawn from the military or work their way up from footmen rather than friends with whom the royal was brought up. I can't imagine any of my friends wanting to become my aid, much less call me Sir. Friends are friends and staff are staff!

However, if a friend of a crown prince found himself in the position of needing a job as aid, he would have to maintain the usual protocols and he is likely to know that anyway!

And just how did this gentleman become the "UK's leading expert on etiquette and royal protocol". Was there a contest or perhaps a royal appointment? My guess would be self appointment.

"Self-described" it is.

Here's his web page: William Hanson, the UK's Leading Etiquette & Royal Protocol Expert | William Hanson
"William is widely regarded as the UK’s youngest trusted authority on etiquette and protocol."
He was born in 1989.

...and one of his proudest moments:
"In January 2012, William helped set the Guinness World Record for the 'Longest Curtsey Relay in 5 Minutes' in New York, thus making him the world's first World Record Breaking etiquette expert."

British royal weddings are usually morning events so a tiara would be inappropriate, also even for an afternoon wedding it just is not part of our tradition. Scandinavia seems to be the only place where white tie and tiaras are the norm for royal weddings.

Only if the wedding cermony takes place late in the afternoon so that it's followed by a dinner, for example the wedding between Victoria and Daniel. The wedding between king Carl Gustaf and Silvia began at noon and was not a white tie wedding, the female guests wore long dresses and hats.

Protocol during State visits

The most thrilling part for me during a State visit is the Protocol.
And who receives the visiting Head of State at airport and where does the host Head of State meet him and where is the full military salute presented and all..

For example, I know in Denmark and Spain QMII/KJCI receive them personally at the airport and military salute is presented there itself.
Whereas in UK/Luxembourg/Norway, the PoW/HGD/CP receive them at airport/port and QEII/GDH/KHV receive them at the palaces, where the military salute is presented.
In Republics, it is more or less the same.
In Russia, the President receives the visiting HoS not even at the entrance of kremlin, but exactly in middle of some hallway.
In India, the Deputy Foreign Minister receives them at airport, whereas Prez, Vice Prez, PM, Foregn Minister receive them at a very colourful full blown military reception in Rashtrapati Bhawan (Prez Palace)

I have not seen any State visits to Belgium and Netherlands..Anyone knows the protocol in these two countries?

Add ur info and views regarding protocol in other monarchies, as well as republics
But I find State banquets are almost same in all countries.
