In Northshield, the new sovereigns are crowned in morning court, and the 
county/duchy thing is done in evening court, leaving the outgoing couple 
the day to lounge around being nobody (the words I've heard said outgoing 
couples use).

As for paying, usually everybody pays site fee unless the royals are 
comped. Serving feast, OTOH, is a time-honored method for poor college 
students to eat feast for free, and it's considered both greedy and 
insulting to require servers to pay for feast. Then there was the event 
steward who didn't want a server's feast, she wanted the servers to beg 
their tables for leftovers. That went over *really* well.

Usually the server's feast and food for the kitchen help is figured into 
the feast budget, so a feast for 150 will probably end up serving more 
like 200, when you factor everybody else in. Extra treats for the kitchen 
help are entirely up to the head cook.
