HOC doors slammed in Black Rod's face as MPs are summoned

Before the King delivers his speech, Black Rod summons the MPs to attend the speech in the House of Lords.

This act symbolises the House of Commons subordination to the House of Lords and the Crown.

Once MPs have been ushered into the Commons, the door of the House of Commons door is then slammed in the face of the Black Rod, symbolising the independence of the House of Commons.
