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


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.)
