This Christian order is a tri-graded system. The first degree consists of the Candidate’s admission, obligation and installation as a Knight Companion of the Red Cross of Constantine.
The Order is open to all Master Masons who are also Companions of the Royal Arch (Chapter) and Mark Master Masons.
Even after joining those Lodges and Chapters, the Brother who seeks a complete knowledge of the Solomonic Degrees will still find many questions unanswered, especially relating to the historical period between the Master Mason degree and the Royal Arch. A Council of Royal and Select Masters confers four Degrees, which answer many of those questions.
On the 10th December 2003 the United Grand Lodge of England acknowledged and pronounced the status of the Supreme Order of the Holy Royal Arch to be “an extension to, but neither a superior nor a subordinate part of the degrees which precede it”.
HRH Prince Michael of Kent the Grand Master of the Grand Lodge of Mark Master Masons is, as is well known, the blood brother of HRH The Duke of Kent the Grand Master of the United Grand Lodge of England.
