There are rules to be followed when you’re a non-royal. If you ever find yourself at dinner with the Queen Elizabeth you cannot sit down until she does, you have to wait until she starts eating before you can and you must address her as Your Majesty.

Even in writing, people rarely call her anything other than “Queen Elizabeth” or “the Queen.” But most people aren't the late South Africa president Nelson Mandela.

‘Her state visit to South Africa in 1995 when he was President was one of the highlights of her reign.’
