February Luncheon: The Do’s and Don’ts of Planning a Royal Visit

Chief of Protocol, Dwight MacAulay has organized several Royal visits to the Province – including those of Her Majesty The Queen, Prince Phillip, Prince Charles, Princess Anne, Prince Andrew, Prince Edward as well as other members of The Royal Family. He also worked on a Royal visit by the King and Queen of Sweden and plays a key organizational role with respect to many premiers’ conferences, ministers’ conferences, international trade missions as well as visits to the province by foreign heads of state.

He was awarded the Governor General’s Golden Jubilee Medal in honor of the Queen’s Golden Jubilee. In October 9, 2002, Her Majesty invested him as Lieutenant in the Royal Victorian Order, and eight years later on July 3, 2010, Her Majesty elevated Dwight to the rank of Commander of the Royal Victorian Order (CVO) making him the only Manitoban to ever receive such an honor.

This is the highest possible rank attainable in Canada in the Royal Victorian Order. Most recently, Dwight was asked to serve on a national Committee that is planning Canada’s 2012 Diamond Jubilee celebrations in Honor of Her Majesty’s 60 years of service to Canada and the Commonwealth.

This is a great opportunity to gain a fascinating insight into the planning and protocol involved in a Royal visit, a subject that is sure to be of interest to professional communicators but also to those with a interest in the Monarch.
