What is royal court?

Famous quotes containing the words royal and/or court:

    Bohemia is nothing more than the little country in which you do not live. If you try to obtain citizenship in it, at once the court and retinue pack the royal archives and treasure and move away beyond the hills.
    O. Henry [William Sydney Porter] (1862–1910)

    At court I met it, in clothes brave enough
    To be a courtier, and looks grave enough
    To seem a statesman.
