The letters patent creating a baronetcy set out the privileges, rights, precedences and advantages which attach to the baronetcy1; a baronet has no privileges except those stated in his patent.
Baronets have the right to the title or prefix 'Sir' and may use the post-nominal abbreviation of 'Bt' or 'Bart'. A baronetess in her own right has the prefix 'Dame' and may use the abbreviation 'Btess'. The wife of a baronet is entitled to the prefix 'Dame' although socially is always styled 'Lady', but the husband of a baronetess has no special form of address.
