I would be hard pressed to provide you with a better explanation.

Thank you so much:flowers

Windsor Jacket

I do not know if there is a more appropriate thread for this question, but I am sure that someone might have some insight.

I was wondering who is "allowed" to wear the Windsor Jacket at state occasions at Windsor. The jacket, worn by men, is a very dark blue with red collars and cuffs.

I have seen The DofE, HM's sons and ViceAdm Tim Laurence as well as the DofGloucester, DofKent and Prince Michael of Kent wearing the jacket. My understanding is that some senior courtiers can wear the jacket as well.

I have attached a picture of the Lord Chamberlain, the Earl Peel from the
Irish banquet. I have seen video with a gentleman escorting Dame Judi Dentch at the banquet - maybe Master of the Horse but I am not sure.

Does anyone know who is privileged enough to wear it and how the "honour" is bestowed?

Thanks in advance.

Dman,
Yes I did do some due diligence and checked out Wikipedia but it was not very helpful - in fact it did not tell me anything that I did not already know. It makes no mention of who (specifically) gets to wear the jacket or how the honour is bestowed.
I sort of aliken it to the Royal Family Order for women....you don't know who has been given it until you see them wear it (except that only femal members of the family get the RFO - not courtiers)
Maybe I shoud take ar look at my Royal Encyclopedia to see what it has to say. It is getting a bit dated now but is usually a good place to start.
Thanks for the help.

Prince Carl Philip and the Order of the Polar Star

I notice on the main blog that is was Prince Carl of Sweden's 35th birthday on May 13th. The picture that accompanied the article reminded me of a thread some time ago discussing the black ribbon neck badges that the Swedish royal men have been wearing of late.

At the time, as I recall, it was thought that they had reverted to using the older style black ribbon for the Order of the Polar Star as opposed to the newer (after 1975 I think) blue ribbon with yellow sides.

Was this ever definitively settled? and,
Is the black ribbon only to be used for evenings/formal events. That is, will we see the blue ribbon at a daytime or less formal event?
