  • According to proper etiquette (which the royal family follows in formal situations) an esteemed guest or someone important that you are going to meet should never be exposed to another woman's "decolletage." The term "decolletage" actually refers to the neckline of the dress but can also refer to covering-up in general, especially the shoulder area. It's nothing against showing your arms, it's about choosing a tasteful and respectful outfit.

  • In England, from what I understand, it is most respectful to be completely covered when addressing her Highness the Queen of England. Any type of skin showing below the neck can be considered distasteful. The same goes with a dutchess also. It's etiquette over there.

  • Etiquette and tradition should be respected and followed, not made fun of. Are Americans the only ones that just don't understand any kind of etiquette whatsoever?

  • England has been an ally to the US for many, many years. I think Mrs. Obama can respect the Queen and their customs.

    We have a problem in this culture that we think our ways are right. I think the old saying "when in Rome do as the Romans do" fits here
