//Absurdly helpful for people writing royal characters and/or characters who interact with royalty and members of the nobility.
Citizen is simpler and more beautiful~ but just in case anyone needs this.
DUDE BUT THIS IS WHAT I’VE BEEN TRYING TO TELL PEOPLE
in medieval times you ONLY addressed a king/queen with “Your Majesty”, NEVER “Your Highness”. To address a king/queen with “Your Highness” was considered an insult.
BUT your highness to wills and Kate because they are heirs.
William and Kate are your ROYAL highness
TRUTH. my bad.
Your highness is legit for a prince/princess who is not in the immediate line of succession I believe? Like Harry is definitely “his highness,” am I wrong?
I HAVE BEEN CORRECTED. In the UK, it is always “your royal highness,” no matter what. Not so in other countries. These titles have only been standard since King James I&VI, before that it was just whatever royalty felt like being called, basically. So there you go!
