Master of the Horse

“An official having charge of horses, hounds, etc., of a sovereign of England. He is there a member of the ministry and the third dignitary of the court” (105). In modern times the post is entirely ceremonial (142). Terry (286) says he is in charge of carriages, limousines, and mounted processions as well as the royal stables. We are unable to discover who is in charge of sweeping the street after the royal procession.
