The appearance of King Richard, dressed in Robin Hood’s Kendal green, at the end of the first Huntington play serves a similar function. It proves that yeomen and king belong to the same merry company. The meeting in Henry V does just the reverse. It reveals an unbridgeable gulf, a gulf no good fellowship could ever span, between commoner and king.
