misterscollins.design Houghton Hall
Architect: James Gibbs and Colen Campbell
Interiors: William Kent
Built: 1720s
Location: Kings Lynn, Norfolk, England
Client: Sir Robert Walpole
Home to: David Cholmondeley, 7th Marquess of Cholmondeley
In 2003, the established tradition of walking backwards in front of the Queen, during the procession ahead of the Queen's Speech in the House of Lords, was ended, largely as a health and safety issue.

From Wikipedia: "In the United Kingdom, the Lord Great Chamberlain is the sixth of the Great Officers of State (not to be confused with the Great Offices of State), ranking beneath the Lord Privy Seal and above the Lord High Constable. The Lord Great Chamberlain has charge over the Palace of Westminster (though since the 1960s his personal authority has been limited to the royal apartments and Westminster Hall). The Lord Great Chamberlain also has a major part to play in royal coronations, having the right to dress the monarch on coronation day and to serve the monarch water before and after the coronation banquet, and also being involved in investing the monarch with the insignia of rule. He wears a distinctive scarlet court uniform and bears a gold key and a white stave as the insignia of his office"

It is of note that Houghton Hall has been connected directly to the political structure of the United Kingdom for several hundred years, through both Sir Robert Walpole, Britain's first de facto Prime Minister, and through the Cholmondeley family as Joint Hereditary Lord Great Chamberlain.
