Guidance for receiving the Lord-Lieutenant
When attending events as the representative of The King, the Lord-Lieutenant of Shropshire Mrs Anna Turner JP must be received with the etiquette and protocol that would be extended to a member of the Royal Family.
Traditional protocol to follow
When attending an official ceremony or formal occasion, including award presentations and processions, the Lord-Lieutenant takes precedence over other guests.
On arrival, the Lord-Lieutenant should be received by a named person, usually the host, and should continue to be accompanied throughout the entire engagement. The Lord-Lieutenant will arrive at a designated time that is slightly later than the other guests and should be the last person to take their seat.
