The Grand Duke spoke English with a slight accent, and was extremely affable to every one. Affable is the word, for despite his courtesy he never forgot, nor did you, that he was a great noble. It was not exactly condescension, but you knew the minute you saw him, that he did not belong to the common herd. The Wichita Eagle, 'Duke's Adventure Led Him to Kansas', by Beccy Tanner
