    Should we capitalize "my king?"

    Hello,
    If someone is writing a novel about a king, and a minister is talking to the king, should it be "Hello, my king/My King/ my King?"


    Thank you.

    Re: Should we capitalize "my king?"

    Within the British monarchy, I believe the correct term of address is "Your Majesty". I don't think "Hello" would be deemed polite enough!

    Click HERE and scroll down to "Royalty".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    You should capitalize the name of the office.
