VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwire) -- 05/16/12 -- Maitre d' Malone slingshots Canadian-made mobile tech into the social stratosphere with crowdsourced confidence and unprecedented candour - judge for yourself and enjoy.
Candid, cunning and an informative delight to read.
"Brilliantly researched, clearly culled sub rosa, boldly going where no Debrett has ever dared" chimes in top UK royal observer The Morton Report.
Wonder no more when it's tiara-wear and when it's certainly not.
Glimpse the art of the show-stopping curtsy.
Enter into the know about young royal haunts, arcane handshakes, petulant princes and majestic toasts.
Polite protocol sheets from Buck House and the GG tell only half the story and are easily misplaced in the excitement of a royal audience. With iPhone app Tip This in hand you'll never be caught off guard by this old guard.
Jubilee Year Royal Tours and the London Olympic Games afford the public unprecedented opportunities for an audience with members of the British Royal Family.
The following are excerpts from digital diplomat iPhone app Tip This by Maitre d' Malone.
Men bow from the waist to Royals.......in Japan, but never to the British!
A deep, sincere bow of the head is what's expected from gentlemen meeting a member of the British Royal Family.
While women may bow the head they are also entitled to curtsy. This is not an act for the meek nor for the unstable. Tumbling forward into history's cirque du disgrace is best to be avoided, but done properly a curtsy is an exquisitely elevating act wrought from a descending motion.
Begin sober, firmly grounded, breathing slowly and deeply. When the time arrives begin the curtsy ascending to one's full height, pause poised for a split second creating a scintilla of drama then begin slowly descending, weight on front foot, hands gently spreading slightly to the side. Rise up, regain your posture and enjoy the response.
When in conversation with a member of the royal family, be on guard. The Duke of Edinburgh can be jocular and tangential in an attempt to put people at ease. Take quick delight in this royal wildcard and very slow to umbrage. The absence of this clever, kind-hearted energy ensures an awkward and unmemorable encounter. This brings us to The Prince of Wales who's childish custom it is to ask a simple question, usually "what do you do?" to which one replies. Strangely then the Prince cocks an eyebrow and fills the time with awkward silence which the person unwittingly fills with nonsense that the Prince later repeats at their expense thinking himself quite the raconteur. Don't let that happen to you. If he plays that card of sulky silence return it in kind and be the one to bring the audience to an end moving on knowing you've ruined his day but he not yours.
Should you be meeting the Queen's cousin the Duke of Kent adjust your handshake accordingly as he is the head of the ultra-secretive Freemasons Society. But if you're under 40 do seek out The Birdcage in The Royal Enclosure at Ascot - it is the sanctum sanctorum of the young, global-nobles.
