 Order of Precedence in England and Wales
Precedence existed in pre-Conquest times: an Anglo-Saxon document states that "in the laws of the English, people and law went by ranks." The Conquest presumably resulted in the introduction of precedence as it was practiced at the court of Normandy, just as titles and offices were imported by the victors.
However, the Order of 1520 was held in high regard, and was adopted by the commissioners for executing the office of Earl Marshal in 1595 when they were asked by Elizabeth I to inquire into place and precedence.
House of Lords Precedence Act 1539 and the Ordinance of 1595, both of which were to a large extent codifying current practice, form the canvass of the order of precedence.

The Order of the Garter, which pertains to England, is most senior in both age and precedence; its equivalent in Scotland is The Most Ancient and Most Noble Order of the Thistle.
The Order was founded circa 1348 by Edward III as "a society, fellowship and college of knights." Various more precise dates ranging from 1344 to 1351 have been proposed; the wardrobe account of Edward III first shows Garter habits issued in the autumn of 1348.
(See order of precedence in England and Wales for the exact positions.) Wives, sons, daughters and daughters-in-law of Knights of the Garter also feature on the order of precedence; relatives of Ladies of the Garter, however, are not assigned any special precedence.

 Order of Precedency in England
regard to the order of precedency, it may be observed in general, that persons of every degree of honour or dignity take place according to the seniority of their creation, and not of years, unless they are descended of the blood-royal; in which case they have place of all others of the same degree.
With regard to the precedency among women, we may observe, that women, before marriage, have precedency by their father; with this difference between them and the male children, that the same precedency is due to all the daughters that belongs to the eldest.
If a woman has precedency by creation or birth, she retains the same, though she marries an inferior; but if a woman nobly born marry any nobleman, as a baron, she shall take place according to the degree of the husband only, though she be a duke's daughter.

 Order of precedence - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
An order of precedence is a sequential hierarchy of nominal importance of people; it is used by many organizations and governments.
One's position in an order of precedence is not necessarily an indication of functional importance, but rather an indication of ceremonial or historical relevance; for instance, it may dictate where dignitaries are seated at formal dinners.
Additionally, it may serve as the order of succession to determine who replaces the head of state in the event they are removed from office or incapacitated, although the two terms are not interchangeable in most cases.

The Prince Charles, Prince of Wales (Charles Philip Arthur George Mountbatten-Windsor) (born 14 November 1948), is the eldest son of Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh.
As heir-apparent to the Throne, the Prince of Wales had to choose a bride who was both a virgin and a Protestant (ideally, a member of the Church of England) who had an impeccable background in terms of both lineage and comportment.
Critics of the Princess of Wales alleged that she was unstable and temperamental; one by one she sacked each of the Prince of Wales's longstanding staff members and fell out with numerous friends (her father, her mother, her brother, The Duchess of York, Elton John, her own staff — who quit after rows).

Then it was necessary merely to connect the principal watercourses by ditches and to dam the main Finham Brook, in order to isolate the castle behind the almost impregnable defence of a lake half a mile in length, with a smaller lake on the eastern side of the dam.
He ordered barges overland from Chester and attempted an attack from the lake, but with no success, for the audacious rebels even kept the gates open day and night, making frequent and damaging sorties.
When towers and barges had failed, the Papal legate, Cardinal Ottoboni, afterwards Pope Adrian V, was called upon to excommunicate the defenders, which he did; but they dressed one of their number in mockery of the legate, and from the battlements parodied the anathemas.
