We beseech you to be kind - at all times kind - even if doubt or uncertainty try to take hold of you in any given moment. Please be respectful of each other even if you do not agree.
Their Majesties are happy to receive any and all largesse from the artisans of the Outlands
Their Majesties ask that phones and cameras be kept discrete or hidden during court. They have seen, in this kingdom and in others, photographers becoming intrusive. Their Majesties have been distracted by members of the Court using cameras and cell phones. All of these people were not doing it to be disruptive. They were trying to capture a special moment. Unfortunately, their actions distracted the audience and appeared in others’ pictures. By trying to capture it, they intrude on the medieval moment for those watching.
Their Majesties love pictures. LOVE them. They love the photographers and respect their art. Their Majesties are NOT banning photography. They merely wish for the living tableau that is Court to be free from cameras.
Ideal spots to shoot from are on the sides, between the last chairs up in court and the first row of the audience or from the back of the hall. You are less likely to get other photographers in your shot, and less likely to distract those in the moment.
