From there, the whole argument goes down the pan before we get anywhere near considering what Parliament can and cannot do.
I think the Oath to maintain the Church of Scotland and the Accession Declaration will be televised next time. The State Opening of Parliament has been televised since 1958, which covers the Oath to maintain the Protestant Succession, itself toned down in the 20th century to eliminate the inflammatory anti-Catholic rhetoric.
The Accession Proclamation is read throughout the Commonwealth too, after an appropriate meeting in that country. Canada was the first country to make the Proclamation in 1952, perfectly feasible, as it had no reason to wait on any meeting in London.
