On behalf of the Sovereign, the Lord High Commissioner attends the General Assembly, makes opening and closing addresses to the Assembly, and carries out a number of official visits and ceremonial functions, not all related to the Church of Scotland. All ministers, elders and deacons appointed by Presbyteries to attend the General Assembly are known as Commissioners, the Lord High Commissioner sits on the Throne in the Royal Gallery, which is technically outside the Assembly Hall - symbolising the independence of the Church in matters spiritual from state interference. Apart from his/her opening and closing addresses the Lord High Commissioner makes no further intenvention in Assembly debates, but will be in daily attendance for at least part of each day's business. Following the Assembly the Lord High Commissioner personally informs the Queen about the business of the week.


While the General Assembly is meeting, the Lord High Commissioner is treated as if a regent. He/she is attended to by the Purse Bearer and a chaplain. By custom, he/she is addressed as "Your Grace", and is greeted with a bow or curtsey. He/she resides at the Palace of Holyroohouse and gives a garden party for Commissioners to the General Assembly on the Saturday afternoon of Assembly week and other hospitality. He/she is entitled, by law, to use the old Royal Standard of Scotland — the "lion rampant" flag, and has precedence immediately after the Sovereign, the Duke of Edinburgh and the Duke of Rothesay, and before the rest of the Royal family. Even his/her official car receives special treatment, and, except for the Queen's, is the only vehicle in the country not to have a numberplate. However, the plate is re-attached during the closing speech of the Assembly, and the Lord High Commissioner returns to his royal but temporary residence as an ordinary citizen. The Royal Standard is the official flag of Queen Elizabeth II in her capacity as Sovereign of the United Kingdom and of various other Realms. ... The Order of precedence in Scotland was fixed by Royal Warrant in 1905. ...
