The Duchess Effect

There has been an amazing resurgence of interest in manners and tradition, and without doubt some of this is because of the young and beautiful Duchess of Cambridge and the media interest in Prince Harry’s forthcoming wedding to Meghan Markle.

We are thrilled to offer a very special one-day programme with our expert tutors featuring top tips on how to walk, talk and dress gracefully like the Royal Duchesses whilst perfecting your modern social graces – you too can become a Duchess!

Topics will include:

  1. An introduction to modern Royal etiquette and social skills

  2. Transforming into a Royal... What does it take?

  3. First impressions: making an entrance, graceful introductions, meeting and greeting - from handshake to cheek kiss

  4. Princess poise; perfect posture, deportment, grace, and how to wear a tiara or hat

  5. Making an entrance, getting in and out of cars (and thrones!)

  6. Social networking and confident communication

  7. The perfect hostess - how to run your own Palace

  8. Western dining skills; silverware, afternoon tea and the cocktail hour

  9. Fashion, style, and the Modern Working Wardrobe
