Wow, amazing how much time has passed and how young William looked at the time. He was knighted in the presence of his brother and his love, Catherine.
And both those two giggled at his hat. It's a nice memory.

I believe both King Leopold III and King Baudouin were Knights of the Garter. In fact, Albert II and now Philippe are the only Kings of the Belgians who were not given that honor.

King Philippe will probably become a Knight if there is a Belgian state visit to the UK.

That’s right. All Belgian Kings of the past with the only exception of Albert II (who is said to be very disappointed about it) received the Order of Garter. Blog Real kindly provided a link to all members of the Garter today.

When will Camilla and Catherine be created ladies of the Garter? The duke of Edinburgh was made knight of the garter in 1947 (on the occasion of his wedding I suppose) together with The princess Elizabeth. So, it would be a nice gesture to make the future queens also ladies of the garter. Queen Alexandra, queen Mary and the Queen Mother were all made Ladies of the Garter in the year of their husbands ascending the throne, so I assume that was in connection to them becoming queens, so that's probably what we should expect for Camilla and Catherine as well. Nonetheless, it is interesting that Philip was treated differently as the future queen's husband Philip; as a man he didn't have to wait for his wife to ascend the throne to become a knight marrying the heir presumptive was enough.

No State Visit hence he didn’t receive the Garter. It wasn’t a snub.

Prince Philip was:
1) a cousin
2) a war hero
3) in the line of succession to the british throne

Perhaps, Mr John Smith would be treated differently in the same situation.

The Queen was going to go on a state visit to Belgium in 2003, but it was canceled by the British government due to the likelihood of war in Iraq and never rescheduled.

The Queen has been graciously pleased to appoint Dame Mary Fagan to be a Lady Companion of the Most Noble Order of the Garter, and the Viscount Brookeborough to be a Knight Companion of the Most Noble Order of the Garter.

Dame Mary Fagan, DCVO served as Lord-Lieutenant of Hampshire between 1994 and 2014 and was also Chancellor of the University of Winchester from 2006 until 2014.

Alan Henry Brooke, 3rd Viscount Brookeborough has served as Personal Lord in Waiting to The Queen since 1997 and has been Lord Lieutenant of Co. Fermanagh, Northern Ireland since 2012. He served with HM Armed Forces between 1971 and 1994, with 17th/21st Lancers, the Ulster Defence Regiment and the Royal Irish Regiment.

What about King Felipe? I received the Order last year during the State Visit, is it usually he is not on the "list"?

I could be totally wrong but from what I understand, foreign royals that are endowed with the Order of the Garter are in a separate classification called "Stranger Knights". They aren't part of 24 perpetual Knight Companions of the Garter.

Please correct me if I'm wrong here.

Correct - both foreign and British royals are extra to the 24 knights.

I believe the tradition is for Queen Consort be the first one created ladies of the Garter by the monarch. So Camilla will be the first one once Charles becomes king, and Kate once William becomes king.

I have read on Twitter that Prince Philip will not be attending today's Order of the Garter ceremony. This is not unexpected but still sad. It says that Prince Charles will be accompanying his mother today so he will likely be in the carriage with her. Camilla will likely travel with William and Catherine (if she attends) or she'll be with Edward, Sophie and Andrew.

There are many people mentioning on Twitter that they hope Meghan attends today. I'm guessing they don't realise that only Garter Knights and spouses attend...

There's a loud part of this fandom that is making everything about Meghan and can't imagine that she won't be included in everything.
