Debrett's Handbook Coronation Edition

£35.00

With informed insights on a range of formal occasions, modern manners and forms of address, Debrett’s Handbook is a trustworthy companion to social life and rites of passage. This weighty 480-page compendium of advice is a stylish hardback book, with a beautiful red and gold-embossed front cover.

This Coronation Edition was revised and updated in 2023 following the death of Queen Elizabeth II and the accession of King Charles III.

All formal address guidance has been updated to reflect the accession, the new position of the Queen Consort, and other changes in the Royal Family.
