If a man owes the Queen knight service for a fief, and Queen wilfully or negligently fails to perform accolade of knighthood on him, does such failure work uncompensated taking of land?

Do lords owing knight service of a number of knights to Queen accordingly have a right to validly confer knighthood themselves?

Unlikely.Was any covenant entered guaranteeing the accolade?
As established relating to the former offer of knighthood at 21
for the eldest sons of baronets,no Sovereign can bind a future
Sovereign.

A "feudal knighthood" conferred by a lord is not recognized as
a knighthood as conferred by the Crown itself.

Which "queen"? Of where? You don't expect a worldwide answer, do you?
