better secured. The King's approval of an appointment of Governor must, of course, be obtained, and his advice upon the selection must be heard, but in case of disagreement approval could now only be withheld on the King's personal responsibility, and there can be no doubt that a Dominion government would regard such action as unconstitutional. It is hardly then by virtue of any function performed by him that the King is looked upon as the symbol of imperial unity. The fact that he is actually seen in this light is due partly to the antiquity of the institution he represents, and partly to its association with the common tradition and history of the British people. Some have concluded from this that an inanimate symbol would serve as well. But the King does more: he is the head of society; he sends a son or personal representative to visit the Dominions and to take the lead in important celebrations, or he goes himself. Once again, distance makes mystery more mysterious and adds to magic.
The royal household is of remarkable complexity. There are the college of chaplains, the medical household, the Master of the Horse, the Lord Steward, the Lord Treasurer, the Comptroller, the Gold Stick, and the Aides-de-camp. But the two most important officers are the Lord Chamberlain and the King's Private Secretary, neither of whom is now a political appointment. Under the former are the seven lords-in-waiting, the seven grooms-in-waiting, and the gentlemen-at-arms. "The Lord Chamberlain's chief function is the regulation of Drawing-Rooms and Levees. He is also responsible, curiously enough, for the licensing of dramatic entertainments. His salary is 2000 pounds a year."(1) The second officer, the Private Secretary, with a department under his control, has the task of assisting the King in those official
