the precedence of Princess Charlotte[edit]

If this is correct, in an official capacity, Princess Charlotte would not be permitted to be carried by the Duchess of Cambridge in an official procession but rather held by a lady-in-waiting or whomever after Lady Gilman. This is absurd and can't be in practicality, how it is actually carried out. This would be that the eldest granddaughter of the Queen is accorded the same precedence as the Queen's cousin-niece and that can't possibly be right. Is that how it is actually done, in the Abbey or whatnot at services or whatever? Look and see how it's done. (talk) 01:00, 5 June 2015 (UTC)


Are all councillors of equal precendence whether of County Councils, Parochial Parish Councils, Rural COmmunity COuncils, Town and Parish COuncils and in fact higher in precedence than London Assembly Members, MEPs or MSPs when they are in England - for example in court settings or national (UK being the nation and not England) events. As that is what is suggested at the moment by the article. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 09:44, 6 June 2015 (UTC)

Women Bishops[edit]

Admission of women to the episcopate in the Church of England leads to interesting issues:

a. The Bishop of Gloucester (election confirmed 15 June 2015) is female. b. There is one serving female suffragan bishop (Stockport) and two appointed (Hull and Crediton).

Presumably they will be slotted into an equivalent position in the order of precedence for ladies as their brethren do in the order of precedence for gentlemen. (talk) 15:15, 25 June 2015 (UTC)

Missing Minister without Portfolio.[edit]

Isn't Robert Halfon in the Cabinet too? Slightnostalgia (talk) 07:16, 27 April 2016 (UTC)


Where do the Lords Commissioners of a Great Office of State, other than Keeper of the Great Seal, fit in? (At present that would be the Lords Commissioner of the Treasury or junior whips.) Speaking of the Treasury, is there some place for the Parliamentary Secretary or Chief Whip? -- (talk) 16:31, 12 July 2016 (UTC)
