Etiquette School


The Royal School of Etiquette 

The Royal School of Etiquette opened its doors 8 years ago in 2015. Grant now travels the globe teaching his etiquette classes as far as Australia. In 2011, Grant held his first etiquette/butler class in a room in a hotel in his local town. Within two years, he established The Royal School of Butlers with HRH Princess Katarina as the patron.

HRH Princess Katarina and Grant, both passionate about etiquette, established the Royal School of Etiquette, with classes running at:

Blenheim Palace, The Ritz Hotel, Ten Trinty Square Club in London and Thornbury Castle near Bristol.

"Grant is a charming and gifted teacher! I had the privilege of taking two of his new online courses, “Afternoon Tea

Etiquette and Dining Etiquette.” Grant virtually invites you

into his home and instantly makes you feel welcomed and at

ease. Both courses were very enjoyable, informative and

thorough, he makes learning etiquette fun!"

Grant began offering Butler courses in 2014, based on

his background at Woburn Abbey and in the British

British Royal family.

In 2014, Grant partnered

with world-renowned

of The Duke of

Marlborough, to offer
