Although the phrase is usually PlayedForLaughs, it also sees more serious use when the greeter wishes to acknowledge a non-binary gender dynamic.

** That implies that the enlisted ranks ''are'' gentlemen.
** No, it implies that only army officers are gentlemen. I wonder why.
*** [[SnubByOmission What about the RAF?]]
*** The RAF wasn't founded until 1918, by which time Victoria's grandson George V was on the throne. Neither he nor any of his successors have seen fit to make a pronouncement on the status of RAF officers.
*** Before the practice was outlawed in 1871 (during Victoria's reign), army officers usually had to pay for their commissions between the ranks of ensign / cornet and colonel; this was seen as proof of their gentlemanly status. By contrast, the Royal Navy never sold commissions; officers were promoted from the ranks. And enlisted men would not even be worth addressing.
