Does England still begin their debutante season with the debs being presented at Court?
Do they still have a debutante season?
When that tradition was in effect, if it no longer is, did a debutante have to be eighteen? Or could she be older or younger by a year or two?
I’m told that a deb could only be presented by someone (they have to be presented, not present them selves) by someone who also was. Can the presenter vouch for more than one young lady? At a time?
Do you have to submit, or simply hope to be called? If the latter, how does one get one’s name in the hat, so to speak?
Is it simply a matter of curseying once to QEII, or whoever, and then to Prince Philip, or whoever? Or is there more to it, like being screened and putting one’s name in a register?
How far back does the tradition go?
Lotta questions, I know, but this is GQ!
