Myka Meier, founder of Beaumont Etiquette, is on a mission to make etiquette fun and accessible for all. A dual American and British citizen, Myka trained in London under a former member of The Royal Household of Her Majesty the Queen, and she has worked with members of the British Royal family. Heralded as “The Etiquette Queen” by the Daily Mail and “America’s First Lady of Manners” by The Times of London, Myka has also been featured in Town & Country, Vogue, Elle Decor, Harper’s Bazaar, InStyle, Brides, People, Fast Company, The Today Show, Good Morning America, and more.
Based in New York City, Myka co-founded The Plaza Hotel Finishing Program, intensive etiquette workshops for adults and children, which is now expanding to Fairmont Hotels & Resorts throughout the United States. Her trademarked class, The Duchess Effect, also held at The Plaza, is consistently sold out, primarily to millennials who are inspired to to gain the polish and grace of the Duchess of Cambridge or Duchess of Sussex.
I discovered Myka via Instagram and was immediately charmed by her bubbly personality, impeccable poise, and timelessly chic attire. I wanted to be a Kate Middleton too! Therefore, I am delighted to announce that over the next six weeks, The Glam Pad will be featuring an exclusive series in partnership with Beaumont Etiquette! Topics will include:
- The Duchess Effect
- Dressing Etiquette
- Dining Etiquette
- Afternoon Tea
- Etiquette for Children
- Holiday Etiquette
Myka’s courses are designed to reflect today’s global society. She attended the prestigious Institut Villa Pierrefeu finishing school in Glion, Switzerland and has been formally trained in Continental European, British and American etiquette. Myka has been flown all over the world to teach royals, celebrities, and other VIPs. Interestingly, about 85 percent of her clients are millennials. She credits the generation’s desire to hone their skills in an increasingly competitive world. Myka also serves as official etiquette partner of Downton Abbey: The Exhibition.
