The Royal Order of the High Council is an order of merit awarded by the Republic of Latitudia. It was founded together with several other awards and decorations on 17 November 2015 by REG/2015:14. The title is awarded to a domestic or foreign current or former member of the Latitudian High Council. The award and title can be revoked at any time by an unanimous vote from the High Council.

Grades

There is only one grade within this order of merit, the Knight or Dame. If presented with a ribbon, medal or similar it should be worn at every official social event should it be appropriate.

  • Knight/Dame of the Royal Order of the High Council, KHC/DHC

Styles

Recipients are referred to as Sir/Dame, unless they have a senior or royal title. They may call themselves according their grade, a Knight or Dame at their own discretion. Postnominals may be shown with or without points (full stops); e.g. K.O.E. or KOE, but preferrably without. When several postnominals are present, if possible put the highest or most senior award first. Postnominals as abbreviations are never used verbally, only in written text.

  • Sir John Smith KHC
  • Dame Mary Smith DHC

Spouses

A spouse to a Knight/Dame may or may not choose to be addressed Mr/Lady Smith, given that they share the surname with the recipient. If chosen, the formal address is Sir John and Lady Mary Smith and Dame Mary and Mr John Smith. If chosen not to, the formal address is Sir John and Mrs Smith and Dame Mary and Mr Smith. If they don't share the same surname, the style will instead be Sir John Smith and Lady Mary Grant, etc. In Swedish, when used, the address would be Herr och fru Smith regardless of stature. Any royal or foreign styles will have precedence.
