Seeing a member of a royal family is as common as cousins marrying. The peasants and peons see the royal hand waving from inside a carriage or from atop a balcony almost daily.

Meeting the Queen privately, however, is a rare event indeed; few outside the upper echelon of power have the privilege of experiencing. Which is why there is a strict protocol for greeting, speaking and just about anything else you might do in "The Royal Company". Any infraction of proper etiquette will not amuse anyone.

For a better understanding of the behavior expected while in audience with the queen, please read the etiquette and protocols memo below.
