Prince Phillip does look very frail, I hope that he is doing well.

Sorry for the resurrection, but here's the video I shot at the procession:



(Sorry for the picture shaking when Camilla gets there, it was hard to see through the route liners)

Thumbs up Many Thanks....

Hi WBenson,

Thank you very much for this video. I am very happy to see it and hope to take in the Garter ceremony next year along with the Trooping and Royal Ascot.

You had a very good vantage point even though the one bobbie was in the way!

Thanks again,
Larry

Thanks so much for this video, WBenson! Besides the chance to see the pageantry and the Royal Family members, I found it interesting to listen to the comments of the bystanders and to see the children in their school uniforms (at least I assume that's why those little girls were dressed alike).
:-)

Here are some old pictures from the Order of the Garter I found at Gettyimages. I thought they would be fun to share.

1911: Edward, Prince of Wales, wearing robes of the order of the Garter. (Photo by Keystone/Getty Images)

David looks awfully young here and he looks like he's quite embarassed at his frilly uniform. Poor boy!

circa 1911: King Manoel II Of Portugal, second son of King Carlos I, he became king when his father and elder brother were assassinated in 1908. He was made a Knight of the Order of the Garter by King George V in 1911. (Photo by Keystone/Getty Images)

This was a royal I knew little about. I wonder what his relationship to the Windsors was. Apparently King George installed a lot of new knights after he came to the throne.

15th June 1912: King George V of Great Britain (1865 - 1936) and Queen Mary (1867 - 1953) in robes of the Order of the Garter during a Royal Pageant at Windsor. (Photo by Topical Press Agency/Getty Images)

Queen Mary as always looking impeccably regal in her Garter robes. She looks almost taller than her husband here.

Here are the Queen's banners when she was first installed as a Knight of the Garter by her father.

23rd April 1948: King George VI (1895 - 1952) and Queen Elizabeth (1900 - 2002) in full regalia during the 600th anniversary of the Order of the Garter ceremony at Windsor Castle, Berkshire. (Photo by Central Press/Getty Images)

King George and Queen Elizabeth looking appropriately regal during a gorgeous ceremony to celebrate the 600th anniversary of the Order. I imagine that was a very impressive ceremony.

An older picture of the chapel where the knights are installed. I imagine it looks quite impressive for a new knight first joining.

16th June 1969: Charles, Prince of Wales at Windsor Castle, Berkshire before a procession of the Most Noble Order of the Garter. (Photo by Fox Photos/Getty Images)

Prince Charles' installation as Knight of the Garter. The Queen had mercy on him and did not make him wear the embarassing uniform that David had had to. He also looks incredibly young.

and a newer picture

WINDSOR, UNITED KINGDOM - MAY 14: The Quire In St. George's Chapel. Above The Garter Stalls Hang The Banners Of The Knights Of The Garter Below Which Are Displayed Their Crests, Helmets And Swords.

This is a color view of the chapel above and is where Edward and Sophie got married in addition to being the home chapel of the Order.

Enjoy!

As the country comes to terms with his grim legacy of a busted economy and the Iraq war, Tony Blair's hopes of being admitted into the ancient Order of the Garter look increasingly forlorn.

I guess the contenders are Camilla, Harry and Sophie, though I think it unlikely that any of them may get it in the Queen's life time.

Maybe the prince Henry; and I think Charles will create Camilla Dame of the Odrer.

Considering that Prince Andrew and Edward got their Garter only in 2006(at 46, 42 ages) I think that Prince Henry will have to wait some more years to get his Garter.
As for Sophie, as far as I know female members of the Garter were either consorts, or Princesses of the blood(Princess Anne and Alexandra).
So, as much the Queen loves Sophie, I dont think that she will be awarded the Garter.
IMO Camilla will be the next Garter lady at the ascension of Charles.

Camilla, IMHO, will get the Garter as a Coronation Gift, as will Harry.

I think Sophie will be more likely to receive the Royal Victorian Order (GCVO)- perhaps this June to mark the 10th Wedding Anniversary?

This year's Garter ceremony will be held on June 15, 2009.

Does anyone know if there will be any new members?

It has been tradition that royal wives are bestowed the GCVO after 17 years of royal marriage and service. I doubt we will see Sophie for at least another 7 or 8 years.

The Garter is even more "exclusive" and I doubt that Camilla will receive it from The Queen. You can probably bet she will become a Lady of the Garter during Charles' reign though.
If the Queen beleives in working for your honours, why did Prince William get a place in the Order? And I am pretty sure that Camilla does have a honour: Queen Elizabeth II's Royal Family Order

William got the garter because he is 2nd in line to the throne and to be the 1000th knight.

I suspect that if it wasn't the 1000th knight that he still wouldn't have it.

Yep that was a premeditate event that was thought of at William's birth. Something about the monarch of the future should be the 100th knight.
Harry's knighthood will depend on future events. Camilla will be a knight the year Charles becomes king. You can bet the house on that. Sophie will never be one.

Not sure. They appear to have changed the rules regarding family honors if there ever were any. Camilla wasn't married to Charles two years before she got a family honour, while Sarah never received one.
Don't know about GCVO? Charles will be getting rid of those honours. Sophie will just have to be happy with the honour she has it will probably be the only one she ever receives.
