    The ritual is swearing his loyalty to the Lord, and he becomes his servant with his sword. That is not Knighthood that is a different ritual. However if you go further you will see the knight puts his sword at the Lords feet.

    www.history.com will show you pics and audio as well. The kiss is the symbol of approval by the Lord for the knights gracious humilty and loyatly.
