Baroness Howe of Idlicote in the Royal Gallery

Baroness Howe of Idlicote in the Royal Gallery Hung with portraits and sculptures of past sovereigns, the Royal Gallery in the House of Lords forms part of the ceremonial route taken by the monarch during the State Opening of Parliament. On a daily basis it is used by Members of the Lords for informal meetings and as desk space for catching up with correspondence and preparing to address the House. It is often used while the House is sitting, since its proximity to the Chamber makes it convenient, especially for those Lords with offices at the further reaches of the Parliamentary Estate.
