What is Etiquette and Manners?

By Angela, 14th Jan 2009

MannersEtiquette is the rules of social behaviour that have evolved over centuries, whilst manners are how these rules are applied.

Manners in the United Kingdom – Royal and State occasions require the most formal behaviour. In the United Kingdom Royal or State functions are organised by Buckingham Palace and anyone invited to such a function are given guidance on dress codes and how to greet the Royal family.

There are differences between social and business etiquette, e.g. in a business context men and women must be given equal treatment; any distinctions are determined by rank and position. In a social context, on the other hand, women often find that men may show a level of attention like hold the door open or pull out a chair.

Good manners may not be commented on but bad manners never get forgotten.
