Address Her as "Ma'am" (rhymes with jam)

Queen.jpgEngland’s Queen Elizabeth II and The Duke of Edinburgh are in the United States this week to help mark the 400th anniversary of the Jamestown settlement in Virginia. So brush up on your royal etiquette, because there will be a chance to watch the queen do a walkabout in Richmond (like this) on May 3, present a gift to people of Virginia at Williamsburg on May 4, or show off one of her iconic hats at the Kentucky Derby on Saturday, May 5. Or just wait until the Annie Leibovitz photos of the queen are released (is there anyone she hasn’t photographed?). This is the queen’s fourth official State Visit but technically her fifth time in the U.S. The British Monarchy Media Centre has posted a full curriculum.
