I was always under the impression that the Landed Nobles were the Crowns representatives?

 Is it possible to address the issues mentioned in The Captain's
 original posting without forming a Principality? Could, for example, a
 northern regional fund be established to help pay for royal travel
 north? (just concept, and not even a fully thought out one...so nobody

 I know their were regional champions in the past, and that the heavy
 weapons champions served as war leaders and 'middle men" between the
 crown and the region. Is that idea possible now, or did it die its
 quiet death for a good reason?

I have suggested the crown enlist members of the royal family to hold court
n areas where they might not be able to attend. The (former) West, the
orth and shires everywhere could have more court presence. I understand
his has been done rarely on an occasional basis.
I think this raises a number of possibilities including the idea of a County
r Duchy where a particular noble or noble couple is responsible for being
he crown's representative for a time (year? two?) and seeing to the needs
f the populace there. Of course that would not exclude crown visits as well
ut would give the locals a presence from the royal family more often. Since
ur Counts, Countesses, Duchesses and Dukes have experience holding royal
ourt and overseeing the kingdom so, assuming they were willing,  they
hould be able to do this for a smaller area.
