THE KING

provided for at the beginning of the reign, and so removed as far as possible from public notice. These votes for princes or princesses once provided frequent occasion for public consideration of the cost of the monarchy, and Victoria suffered as a result. To-day probably there are many Members of Parliament who would be quite unable to state the terms of the Civil List. Then again, the King lives in London, the wealthiest and most prosperous centre of population. If some of the worst slums are within a mile of the Palace, it is also next door to Mayfair; there is nothing of the grim atmosphere of toil and poverty which pervades the industrial centres of the North and Midlands or of South Wales. Nor is there such striking contrast as would raise questions in men's minds in the other areas frequented by the King-the Scottish castle at Balmoral, the large country estate at Sandringham, the huge castle and park at Windsor.
The King, we are told, is the link between the British Commonwealth of Nations, the symbol of the Empire, and this is a further cause of the strength of his position. Without him, it is said, that strange edifice would fall to pieces. Since the Statute of Westminster, moreover, it has become a principle of the Commonwealth that no change in the royal style or position shall occur without the agreement of all the Dominions. The relations of the Government in Canada or South Africa with the King are in theory the same as those of the Home Government, save that there acts for him in a Dominion a Governor appointed by him. Since the shifting of the responsibility for that appointment by the Statute of Westminster from the Home to the Dominion Government, the Governor has ceased to combine the royal function with that of an ambassador of the Home Government. The removal of the Crown from political responsibility has thus been
