Royal protocol

Some royal or other is coming to open our company's offices officially (despite the fact we've been in them a year).

Apparently this is the correct procedure for meeting said bigwigs:

If [the royal in question] approaches you, bow/curtsey, shake hands if offered, let him speak first, and the first time you speak address him as "Your Royal Highness" and after that as "Sir"

This is from our official instructions. Other gems include an exhortation not to use the toilets (presumably we don't want to offend the royal nose).

Fortunately, I have the day off.

I thoroughly enjoyed these. I was trying not to laugh from some of these because I'm at work...but ended up snorting anyways...(i.e. that you fully intend to use the word "omerta" in conversation). I definitely want more!
