9 Things You Shouldn’t Do When Meeting the Queen SUBSCRIBE: https://youtu.be/xsXMP6qQv-w : While most of us will probably never get a chance to meet the Queen, it couldn’t hurt to brush up on your court etiquette, just in case. No one wants to wind up being thrown out of Her Majesty’s dinner party, so you should remember the rules if you want to avoid making a royal fool of yourself. By the way, let’s just assume right here that burping or some other release of gas is forbidden, so we’ll stick to the main ones.
Did you know, for example, that using French words is considered impolite when speaking with the Queen, or any member of the royal family? Of course, breaking the rules of etiquette probably won’t get you thrown into the Tower of London in chains, or even out on the street, you should be on your best behavior if you want your royal rendezvous to go smoothly.

– You might think you look good in your tee shirt and jean shorts, and it might even be true, but that kind of outfit would get you thrown out of even the least formal royal gathering.
– Everybody likes presents, and the Queen is no exception. The practice of presenting the Monarch with a gift is a tradition going back centuries, and respecting it is a great way to get on Her Majesty’s good side.
– Have you ever wanted just to run up and give somebody a hug? Most of the time there’s no harm done, but when it comes to royalty, you’re better off keeping your hands to yourself.
– The correct way to greet Her Majesty is with a formal bow or curtsy. Don’t worry, no one’s expecting you to hurl yourself at the floor. Men are expected to bow from the shoulders, just lowering their heads out of respect.
– It’s very improper to get up and leave without permission, or to arrive late. But quite frankly, that’s just good ‘ol fashioned manners.
– Before speaking to the Queen, it’s important to take note of where exactly you’ve been seated. As a rule, the guest of honor will be seated directly to the Queen’s right, and it’s customary for Her Majesty to address them first. In general, it’s considered good form to let the Queen begin the conversation anyway.
– You might be super curious to hear the truth about some royal family drama, but the Queen is definitely the wrong person to be hassling with personal questions.
– While there have been some instances of fellow monarchs addressing one another on a first-name basis, unless you’re King Harold of Norway, you shouldn’t even think about addressing The Queen by her name.
– Another thing that’s important to remember is that when speaking with the Queen, or any member of the royal family for that matter, it’s considered impolite to use French words.
