is polite to do so anyway).>>
The East does not require it either if one is unable.  Depending on  the 
king, it is more or less easy to let them know you can't.  When I was  pregnant 
with my son and called up for my vigil and then my Laureling, the King  told me 
in no uncertain terms, without my even asking, that I was NOT PERMITTED  to 
kneel due to my condition.  Which was kind of annoying, since I was  still 
perfectly capable of it at the time.
The East also owns (and I know this for certain because I helped make it) a  
padded kneeling bench with raised handles on the sides, akin to a gardener's  
bench.  It doesn't come out all that often, though, as it is extremely  
Norse/Viking in style and doesn't necessarily fit in with the theme of all  reigns.
