Punctuality is the politeness of kings

It is very important to be punctual and it is very rude to be unpunctual. Sometimes ‘princess’ is used instead of ‘kings’. The above was the saying of King Louis XVIII of France. ‘And ‘ added Samuel Smiles in his famous book, Self Help, ‘it is also the duty of gentlemen, and the necessity of men of business.’

Some more notes on punctuality are given under Better late than never.
