How To Address a Former Lord Mayor?
Do you happen to know if the The Right Honourable may continue to be used by a former Lord Mayor of a city in the UK? In this case, it is the former Lord Mayor of Westminster, who, to my knowledge, carries no other honorifics, titles, peerages, or post-nominals.
If so, would it be: The Right Honourable, the former Lord Mayor of Westminster, Mr. Duncan Sandys?
Belfast, Dublin, Edinburgh, Glasgow, the City of London, and many other cities have lord mayors. A woman who holds the office is also addressed as Lord Mayor. The wife of a lord mayor is traditionally addressed in the city as the Lady Mayoress of (city).
—-A current Lord Mayor is addressed as:
—-—-The Right Hon. the Lord Mayor of (city)
—-—-(Honorific if presented) (full name), (post nominals or honors)
Former Lord Mayors are not addressed as The Right Honourable unless they hold that courtesy title by virtue of peerage or as a member of the Privy Council. See note on use of the British spelling of honourable.
Absent being a member of the Privy Council or being a peer addressed as The Right Honourable, former Lord Mayors revert to Mr./Ms. (Full Name), former Lord Mayor of Westminster.
