    Your Majesty or your majesty?

    Hello,

    If someone is talking to the king what should he use of the following:

    "I saw them, Your Majesty"

    "I saw them, your Majesty"

    "I saw them, your majesty"?

    What about my lord is it capitalized when taking to a king? Do we write, "I saw them My Lord"?

    If we are talking, we don't worry about capital letters.

    If you happen to be writing to a king, it's 'Your Majesty'.

    What about My Lord versus my lord?

    In England, we normally address only certain judges as 'My Lord'.
