THE KING

functions of his office which still have political significance, such as the summons of a politician to form a government, or the King's dealings with ministers. In a political crisis the nature of his advice and of his interpretation of the King's constitutional position may be of the utmost importance. In the past there have been constitutional crises, such as the conflict between Victoria and Peel, over the selection of the Sovereign's personal attendants. The principle established and upheld has been the right of the Government of the day to ensure that the Sovereign is surrounded by officials at Court who are in sympathy with the Government's policy. Yet this new political institution, the Private Secretary, is not appointed by the Government. The avoidance of difficulties in the future must depend on the extent to which the King and the Secretary are able to maintain the appearance of impartiality. The appointment is in conflict with constitutional precedent, and it should be a political one.
Side by side with the other changes there has proceeded a certain improvement in the manner of the Court. But it would be too much to call this a democratisation of the monarchy such as has occurred in some continental countries.If there is no longer quite that rigidity of Court etiquette which made Victoria feel it impossible to invite Lord Derby to be seated in her presence even after a severe illness, there are still the elaborate paraphernalia of Court attendance, the odd trappings of Court dress, the obligation upon high officers and officials to attend the levee in costly uniform, the kissing of hands upon appointment as minister, ambassador, or governor. The Court is still, unfortunately, a centre from which snobbery radiates. There are the complicated regulations governing presentation at Court, where a knight's lady and a marchioness has each her nicely graded number
