As we know, learning the rules of etiquette and good manners will help you feel more confident in various situations and not feel embarrassed and awkward in communication. It is good to start by immersing yourselves in the world of the "formal etiquette", because when you find yourself in an unusual formal situation, it is very useful to know the rules of behavior dictated by etiquette.
Carsons Travel Concierge invites you to receive invaluable lessons of behavior in the high society - in the school of etiquette founded by Lady Veronica Scrivener from East Suffolk, whose family is the heirs of the kings of France and England.
Etiquette programs can be fully tailored to your schedule and time, from one-day introductory courses to specialized courses and tours dedicated to the study of the history and cultural heritage of Britain, historical and Royal London, the traditions of rural life on the estate and the etiquette of "high society".
The course leader is Lady Veronica Levett-Scrivener (née Joly de Lotbiniere), descended from a prominent family who bought 20,000 acres of land from the Duke of Norfolk in the 16th century to add to their estates in East Suffolk. Among her ancestors is Bishop John Fisher, patron of the great John Constable and close confidant of King George III.
Veronica's famous ancestors include Admiral William Bligh (1754-1817), captain of the famous HMS (His Majesty's Ship) Bounty, whose infamous mutiny has been the subject of several feature films. Her other ancestor is General Augustine Prevost (1723 - 1782), who commanded the British army during the invasion of North Carolina in 1779, as well as his son Sir George (1769 - 1816), who was governor general and commander in chief of British troops in North America. during the War of Independence. Members of the Joly de Lotbinier family are descendants of the kings of France and England. They held a high position in France and Canada, and through one of the cousins of the Earl of Devon, the family tree goes back to Hugh Capet, King of France (987). In 1787, in Canada, King Louis XVI granted the head of the family the title of Marquis de Lotbinier. His descendant Sir Henry Gustave Joly de Lotbinières became Prime Minister of Quebec and Governor of British Columbia. His grandson, Brigadier General Henry Gustave Joly de Lotbinières established the British line of the family, settling at Brandon Hall in Suffolk. The first wife of his son, Sir Edmond Joly de Lotbinière, the Honorable Elizabeth Joliffe, was a direct descendant of Henry VII, and through her a family line can be traced back to the great Tudor dynasties.
