Billy, Bruce, & co.:

One good resource for readers doing spadework in the post-Victorian 
midden-field of official and honorary British abbreviations:

>         Title Authors' & printers' dictionary
>         Author Frederick Howard Collins
>         Editor Horace Hart
>         Publisher H. Frowde, 1912

http://books.google.com/books?id=_P0uAAAAMAAJ&printsec=frontcover&client=firefox-a&source=gbs_navlinks_s#v=onepage&q=&f=false

There you will find "H.E. His Eminence, — Excellency."

I keep the seventh edition (1933) of this book close at hand. It has 
served me admirably.

(By the way, you can download the googlebooks copy in pdf.)

C&c.
