I bet the bill was a shock!On the status subject. My sister is Archaeologist at a university,and was sent on a conference to the west indies.I can't remember the island. On the online booking thing for the hotel they were staying at, it had the usual tick box for Mr, Mrs, Ms, Dr,Rev etc. But also had one for Your Royal Highness. Which she ticked for a laugh. When She got there, they had a red carpet. multiple staff assigned to Her needs,and had put Her in the penthouse suite. She didn't know whether to fess up that it was just a lighthearted jape. But decided to say nothing,and spent three days in the lap of luxury. Her colleagues thought it was hilarious,and played along, curtseying Your majesty ing,and general grovelling.
