- What happens after the meal? What would the King and his guests do?
- What would they drink?
- Would there be a set hour for the party to end?
- With the party running incredibly late, would the King and his family be able to retire to bed while some of his guests were still awake?
- For the guests staying overnight at the palace - was it considered rude for several guests to stay up til dawn if they wished?
I've tried googling "victorian era dining" "victorian era banquets" "victorian dinner etiquette" "victorian royal dinner party" and similar searches. Not really finding specifics on what I need.
Thanks in advance for any help :)
