2. The Mayoress, Consort or Escort

If the Mayor is male, it is entirely up to the Mayor who he calls his Mayoress. It can be a wife, daughter or female friend.

If the Mayor is female and married, then she may decide that her husband will accompany her on official business and he would then be referred to as the Mayor's Consort.

Alternatively, a Mayor may appoint another person to accompany him or her on official business and, in this instant, that person is referred to as the Mayor's Escort. For example, a male Mayor may appoint a male or female friend as his Escort and, equally, a female Mayor may appoint a female or male friend as her Mayor's Escort.

These titles have no official recognition and are strictly honorary.
