Where are we now and where are the king, queen and all?
It would seem, since they are “coming down” that they are upstairs and this hall is down. Is there an upstairs throne room and a downstairs fencing hall? What is the architecture of Elsinore? I have a lot of questions about it.
Which spaces are private, which are public, how big the rooms are, what the casements are like…is there a literary architecture department somewhere that has studied this?
Of course, the lord could just mean “coming down” in the sense of “coming down the hall.” That’s also an option.
