: : I thought the origin of "The King's English" was King's English and it was the English used by a formwr poet laureate called King?

: Sorry, no. Not much more to say. England hasn't had a Poet Laureate called King - I suppose that's worth saying.

And a good number of England's kings haven't been English either...
