How to talk to a duchess - for those who need a little help

First things first. It's easy to remember how to verbally address a duchess because you call her 'Duchess'. Good for duchesses for being so straightforward.* If you are in a multiple duchess situation, you say 'The Duchess of…' so everyone knows which one you mean. Including her. If the duchess in question used to be married to a duke, you still call her 'Duchess'. The widow of a duke - it's 'Duchess'. A duke's mother - you guessed it. 'Duchess'. Handy. Keep your eyes peeled for royal duchesses, though (like the Duchess of Cambridge) - you should address them as 'Your Royal Highness' on introduction, followed by 'Ma'am'. It's not a trick, it's just an exception to the rule.
