. With prince William and Kate in town, we thought it was the perfect time to test our knowledge of royal etiquette. And just in case we bump into the royal couple, use our skills. Time for the "Gma" royal etiquette cup. We have M mar kweez demichael, and baroness ginger and lady Lara. Lara? I want you to know, judges, one of us may be a royal ringer. We have some evidence to show you. I don't know if this disqualifies me, but I am a member of the royal family. If I may still participate, appreciate it. Don't look on the left side. Great. Lady Lara, and here to help us is royal etiquette expert, Micah Meyer, she's worked directly with the british royal family and teaches a course called the duchess effect. I do. Thank you for having me. Excited to have a real expert. And we have pretend William and Kate here. Thank you for joining us. Now it is time for us to get to the "Gma" royal etiquette cup. It begins. All right. We begin now, contestants. Time to go head to head. You have been cordially invited to the palace. There you are about to take tea. When I say go, use royal etiquette, stir five times and sip your tea. On your mark, get set, go. ? Delightful. All right. Now Micah will score them. Okay, very, very good here. I like what I see. The thing to remember, it's not clockwise or counter clockwise, it's 12-6, 12-6. Yes. Looking at posture here. Lady Lara. An 8. You were fantastic. Score of one to 10, an eight. Where are the other two points? Michael, very good posture. Pinky was up. I saw that in a movie. A 7, sorry. Put your pinky down. I stirred circles and went up and down. Ginger, you had perfect posture. Thank you. Just the 12-6, 12-6, I'm going to go ahead and give you an 8 as well. Okay. It's on, ginger zee. The time, my friends, to dine with your royal hosts. Please repair to the high table and take a seat. I'm pushing in my seat. You all will be eating the royal cookie. Do you know who according to royal etiquette should finish last, the duke, the duchess or the guests? All right, so when I say -- Wait -- What was the last point? I was busy. You have to decide who should finish first or last with the royal cookie. On the your mark, get set, go. ? All right. While they're still finishing, judge Michael who gobbled his up quickly. The thing to remember is let the queen finish last. So his score is -- I'm going to give you a 5. Sorry. Hey, I was hungry. I won on that one regardless of the score. Go with lady Lara here. Lady Lara, I'm going to have to give you a 10. Well done. Well done. You finished right on time, and just slightly before the duchess. And ginger? I loved the napkin in the nap. Fantastic. I'll give you a 9. I think the ladies did a little bit better than the marquis but it was good sport. Chugging not good with the Royals? Ready. I'm going with Lara. Lady Lara.
