And here's an article (https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-40668579) saying that guests are expected to arrive before the queen. Which would mean she's an ass by protocol. So it's hard to fault him for this...

But I don't get how this is mansplaining, or sexist....

Kerouac's parents were from Quebec so he grew up speaking French. I think Ishiguro was born in Japan, and wasn't Martell born in France? or Spain?
