The correct form of address for the Lord-Lieutenant is as follows:
Written: Mrs Johanna Ropner, Her Majesty’s Lord-Lieutenant of North Yorkshire
- Salutation: Dear Lord-Lieutenant
- Speech: In a preamble the Lord-Lieutenant should be referred to as “My Lord-Lieutenant”
- In conversation: Mrs Johanna Ropner should be initially addressed as “Lord-Lieutenant”.
Should the Lord-Lieutenant be represented by her Vice Lord-Lieutenant, Mr Christopher Legard DL, or a Deputy Lieutenant, the above etiquette should be adapted accordingly i.e. ‘Dear Vice Lord-Lieutenant’, 'Dear Deputy Lieutenant'
