The King and Queen (and Seneschal) are the main point of contact for all Kingdom-level business, this includes recommending someone for an award and Kingdom Event bids. If you’re not sure if it’s appropriate to contact TRM please reach out to your local Seneschal first with any questions.
The head of retinue manages the day to day of Their Majesties such as accommodations at events, planning their event schedule and attending to them during events and at Court among other things. If you would like to help / experience being part of a retinue please send us a message!
