About This Quiz

Do you always chew with your mouth closed and keep your elbows off the table? Do you cross your knife and fork over your plate to signal that you are done eating? If you do all of this, and more, you could probably pass Etiquette 101, but there's so much more to remember. If you think you know all there is to know about dining etiquette, then this is the quiz for you. Let's get started to find out if you could really dine with the Queen or if you are better suited for the King.... Burger King, that is.

Let's be serious, most of us don't even come close to observing proper dining etiquette every time we sit down at the table. But even if we don't use these skills often, knowing the rules can make all the difference between fitting in at a formal dinner party and looking like you were raised by wolves. So, even if you don't ever plan on using proper table manners, learn and practice them occasionally. You never know when the Queen could show up for a spot of tea.

If you think you could hang with the Brits, take this dining etiquette quiz to see if you would really fit in.
