The Royal Family are steeped in tradition and while they're much more modern now, there are still some aspects of protocol when it comes to formal events.

Etiquette expert Jo Bryant talks about what happens at a typical state banquet and how the tables would be set out, down to minute precision.

She also explains how to do the perfect curtsy when meeting a member of the Royal Family and talks about whether Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle would have been given etiquette lessons when marrying into the firm.
