I do agree the Garter always looks better than foreign orders.

Question about the Prince of Wales and his medals

I searched around for a thread about this topic. If I missed it somehow then I trust the moderators will merge this one into the proper place. I am sorry if I am causing trouble. I am just wildly curious at the moment about his medals.
I randomly came across a picture from his wedding day in 1981. I considered for the first time his two medals at the time. What were his two medals then?
I am talking about the two military ribbon medals he wore on his first wedding day in 1981.

In addition to my last post, at the time of the first wedding of HRH The Prince Charles, His Royal Highness was also in possession of the following Orders of the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth;

Knight of the Most Noble Order of the Garter - KG
Knight of the Most Ancient and Most Noble Order of the Thistle - KT
Knight Grand Cross of the Most Honourable Order of the Bath - GCB
Knight of the Order of Australia - AK

Royal orders

I was just wondering why it seems that the wives of the British Royal family does not seem to receive other Royal orders like the other wives do? I do not think that Camilla has any. Diana received one and I am not sure about Sophie. Does the BRF just get left out because they do not interact with the other royal houses as much. Just a question, what do you think? I think that Camilla needs so orders, she is the wife of the future King.

Prince Philip

What kind of an order is the Duke of Edinburgh wearing at the funeral of king Baudouin. The other kings and cosorts are wearing the Leopold order and as far as I know the Duke has it, too. I wonder why he chose to wear this other Belgian(?) order....

As far as I can tell, the only Belgian order Philip has is the Order of Leopold, and I can't find any Belgian order that looks like that.

The valet made an error and for 'Leopold' read 'Leopard' so the Duke of Edinburgh found himself with an order from Zaire with no time to get the correct one.
See this post from the King Baudouin Funeral thread for the details.

I don't believe there is any place that would sell them. The bottom three are all Royal Family Orders and the top one is the Order of the Crown of India.

My favourite order insignia is the Order of Australia, of which Queen Elizabeth II is Sovereign. I find the design very eye-catching. The insignia can be seen on Wikipedia at Order of Australia - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

5 little rows of small decorations (barette) belonging to Prince Axel of Danemark and the one of his son Prince Georg were sold on May 18th at Drouot /Paris +/- 1.300 € each. Two sashes of St Olaf of Norway one 50 € and the other 100€ !

To Warren , you are absolutely right about the error of Leopold/Leopard sash at King Baudouin 's funerals.
When the Duke arrived in the morning of the funerals, at the air-plane there was a big consternation among the military people who were there but no one had the high level enough to ask the Duke to change.
In the Church he should have seen that the RF and Royals were wearing the amarante sash of the Leopold's Order...

The subject title of this thread currently being Royal Orders and Decorations, I was curious to know what makes an order a royal one.

Is it that the fons honourum is/was royal?

Is it that the grandmaster must be royal?

Is it that the order is only bestowed upon those recognized as royal?

Or is it just a term which no longer carries its original meaning and can refer to any order associated with any entity (country or person)?

Kind of a confusing issue to me since there seems to be no differentiating between National, Imperial, Royal and other types of orders here... or whether "types" even apply to orders at all. Maybe "order" is its own type and needs no further refining (thus the thread's subject title need not include the word 'royal' at all)?

I've always wondered this question and I think this will be the right place to ask...

There is a picture from early on where Diana is wearing an Orange-Yellow Order and it's pinned on w/that famour Sapphire Diamond Brooch she was given by the Queen Mum. It's the one picture that I say she looks like a "Traditional Princess" if that makes any sense. Anyway...I've always wondered what Order she is wearing in that picture.

Thanks in Advance!!

BTW, I adore the Order of Canada, but I'm biased there. A good friend of my Parents was honoured w/selection to the Order last year both for his work in making Manitoulin Transport into what it is and also for his Charitable Work here on the Manitoulin Island/Northeastern Ontario. He wore it to our LionsFest Weekend Events, as that was part of the reason why he was even considered for it, and I got an up close look at it.

It is gorgeous!!! The pictures do not do any of them justice in the slightest!!

Just thought I'd add that to the discussion. :)
