Some of you may recognise this gentleman from various documentaries or his work for Downton Abbey. Well he also has a job at the College of Arms

I came across an article from the Spanish press and the gist of it was monarchies in general needs the pomp and circumstance of events like Garter day. It said Felipe looked ‘King like’ in his garter robes

If I can find it I’ll post it. Someone randomly retweeted it but I’ll have a look.

With the investiture of Their Majesties King Felipe VI & King Willem-Alexander, I wonder why King Philippe of the Belgians has not (yet) been honoured in a similar way. His father, King Albert II, has never been made a Knight of the Garter, either.

Because there hasn't been a briitsh-belgian State Visit since the 1960's. The Order is usually awarded during State Visits.

I wouldn’t hold my breath on this one. A Belgian state visit is unlikely in the near future.

Thank you to everyone who shared the photos and videos of yesterday's ceremony - what a right royal treat for us fans! It was fantastic to see the Spanish and Dutch monarchs at the ceremony, too, and I loved how well they seemed to be getting on with the BRF (especially Maxima and WA and the Cambridges).

Emily Andrews and Rebecca English say the Cambridges didn’t ‘skip’ the installation of new garter knights. They had a private engagement but can’t disclose the details.

The papers are reporting that there was a crash involving the convoy of W&K on their way to the Garter service, maybe this is why they were late?

No. There was an accident but the Cambridges had another engagement that morning, details of which can’t be made public, yet.

Two first names are overrepresented among the 24 knights and ladies. Out of 3 ladies two are called Mary (the other Elizabeth - Eliza for short) and out of 20 knights there are 4 Johns - most others also have traditional names (Edwin, Timothy, James, Peter, Antony, Richard, Thomas, Nicholas, Michael, Graham (Jock), Frederick (Robin), Mervyn, Charles, David, Alan).

The names of their (former) spouses are much more diverse but also contain some rather traditional names and both a John and two Mary's (disclaimer: I couldn't find all names):
For the Ladies: John(!) (for Lady Mary Peters) and Christopher (for Lady Mary Fagan)
For the Knights: Dorothy, Anya, Susan, Mary (!) (2x) = for Timothy Colman; his wife is a cousin of the queen - niece of the queen mother -; and for Jock Stirrup =, Alexandra, Clare / Jennifer, Gillian, Norma, Christylle, Harriette / Fleur, Barbara, Tessa, Janet.

Please note that several posts discussing the titles and styles used for overseas royals have been moved to the Non-British Styles and Titles thread.

The only "different standard" I saw was the frantical and desperate search of this "quality press" to find ANY possible stick available to hit the dog, to use a Dutch proverb.
