Every year Queen Elizabeth II addresses the British Parliament. She must follow
a long-standing custom. She must go first to the House of Commons. She knocks
on the door. It is opened and then shut in her face. Then she goes to the House
of Lords to make her speech. Why this ritual? Because there is one place in her
realm that the Queen cannot go. It is the House of Commons. She is acknowledged
as Queen in 61 countries of the world! She can go anywhere in any of those
countries, except she can never set foot in the House of Commons. But the King
of Kings is not barred from any corner of the universe. All is his dominion. He
may go where he chooses.
