Lady Helen and Tim Taylor were there, standing behind Camilla in one of the photos.

I know it was announced beforehand that Catherine's last public event would be the Trooping the Colour, however, it seems odd that just one day later she wouldn't attend the Garter ceremony. These days pregnancies are not disabilities or illnesses and many women work up until giving birth. Guess I'm just going through Kate withdrawal.

Also beside Victoria-Edward-George-Edward in 1894 and eventually next month with Elizabeth and her three successors has there ever been a time that a British monarch has been alive with their Three successors (Child, GrandChild, Great Grandchild) also alive at the same time?
I would think given the length of their reign those would be the only two. I also believe Elizabeth is the only monarch to have been alive for her 3 predecessors' reigns - 3 before and 3 after.

George V (Grandpa England)
Edward VIII (Uncle David)
George VI (Father)

Elizabeth II

Charles
William
Baby Cambridge

Almost in 1817 when Charlotte gave birth but sadly her son was stillborn - had he even breathed once then that situation would have existed then as well.

Just a correction, Edward VIII (and George VI) was Victoria's great-grandson. Her great-great grandchild would be Elizabeth.

Edward VII was her son, George V was her grandson.

There have been 3 successors alive before, but not in a direct line. Victoria was born during her grandfather's reign, making her two uncles and herself the three successors of George III (four if you count her other uncle, who inherited Hanover). I believe William IV's first grandchild (through his eldest illegitimate son) was born just a few month's after George III died.

Victoria was alive during 3 of her predecessors reigns - George III, George IV, and William IV. She also saw the birth of four of her successors - Edward VII, George V, Edward VIII, and George VI.

As there's still an opening for another Order member, will Harry get that spot or is someone else in line to be selected? How does the Queen choose who will be joining the other Garter members?

It is only the ranks of Knights Companion that has a limited membership. Members of the BRF are Extra Knights and foreign royals are Stranger Knights, and neither of these groups have any limitation on their numbers. I doubt Harry will get the KG before his father comes to the throne.

You think? Knowing the longevity of the Queen's family, she could be the monarch for another decade or better. Will they wait that long?

There isn't a rush, I just thought Harry receiving such an honor would be lovely.

Go and look at how late Andrew and Edward became Companions. It's an eye opener.

Thanks I corrected it now. There is another Photo of Edward VII after he became King with his Son George V and Grandsons Edward VIII and Albert (George VI) Of course at the time it was not known that Bertie would become King.

Thanks for posting the pictures of The Order Of The Garter Service.

It was nice seening pics of Anne & Tim in the carriage. (IMHO, Tim needs to pick up Royal duties.)

It was nice that someone stayed away that way Getty would photograph the Queen & other members. (The ridiculous number of pics of a certain person/s at the Trooping the Color vs the few of the Queen at her own Birthday celebration was sad. Getty photographers need to be ashame of themselves.)

Harry & Princess Alexandra were missing.

Harry isn't a KG yet, and Alexandra has cancelled most (if not all) engagements recently due to health.

Harry can still attend w/o being a KG. Sophie, Camilla & Tim were there. Since Kate wasn't there Harry should have been there.

"Since Kate wasn't there Harry should have been there. "

Why? William seemed to get on well enough without his wife or his brother being there. It's not like he needed a date.

QEII IS, indeed, beaming!

I just adore seeing her smile! She looks SO jolly and approachable when she does!

And she's got reason to smile, what with PP home, and being escorted at the Garter service by the PoW and the DoC.

WONDERFUL pics!
