The royals’ menu isn’t the only dining aspect that might differ from your household traditions. The royal family also holds proper etiquette at high importance. Before Queen Elizabeth II’s death, it was vital that everyone remained standing until she took her seat (per Hello). Also, if the queen put down her utensils for any reason during the meal, those dining with her had to cease eating until she continued. According to etiquette expert William Hanson, this also means that guests were done when the queen was done. “When the queen’s cutlery goes into the finished position, everyone else should follow suit — regardless of whether there is food left on their own plates,” he said to Marie Claire.

To indicate that you’re finished with your food, Hanson explained that you must position the silverware specifically on your plate. “If you imagine the plate as a clock face and the cutlery as the hands of the clock, when finished eating in Britain, the cutlery is positioned at 6:30 with the tines of the fork facing upwards,” he said. Additionally, when you leave your seat, you should place your napkin neatly on the left side of your plate. 

If it seems like a lot to remember, it is. So, if you ever manage to land an invite to a royal dinner, you’d better study fast.
