More than 20 years’ experience
The English Manner is the UK’s leading etiquette and protocol institute.
We offer training sessions and courses, seminars and presentations across the world, working with royal and diplomatic households, leading corporations and businesses, schools, universities and individual clients.
The English Manner was founded in 2001 by Alexandra Messervy, formerly of the Royal Household of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. Alexandra worked in the Master of the Household’s department and helped plan many high-profile royal events, including state visits, overseas tours, weddings and christenings. She later went on to consult for the Lucie Clayton College (established 1928) whose finishing school has now been subsumed into The English Manner.
Today, all our training programmes are designed by one of the world’s leading experts in etiquette, William Hanson, now an Executive Director, and Viviane Martins – both co-owners of The English Manner.
