Ella Kay over at her Order of Sartorial Splendor provides a very good summary on the subject of Royal Family Orders (as well as many other subjects). 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?

Prince Harry - Aide-de-camp

I have a question that someone out there might be able to answer or shed some light on.

I was doing some research of QEII's Aides-de-Camp. I noticed that Prince Harry has not been so honoured. But I did notice that, at the wedding of his brother, he is wearing what appears to be Aide-de-Camp aiguillettes on his Blues and Royals dress uniform.

Does anyone know if this is part of the uniform itself? or was he designated as an ADC for his brother that day?

Prince Henry did not wear these aguillettes as an aide-de-camp to Her Majesty but as a commissioned officer of the Household Cavalry, wearing full dress. (Commissioned means that Prince Henry has been specially enlisted into the Household Cavalry. In reality he was/is serving in the Army Air Corps and not at all in the Cavalry).

He was commissioned into the Household Cavalry but was seconded to the Army Air Corps. He is now back in HHC, his secondment having ended

I see, I missed the news he definitely quit from the Army Air Corps. I thought a commissioned officer is the one who holds a real command and for Prince Henry hat was in the AAC. Does he hold a real command as well in the Household Cavalry? It is a bit diffuse I must say.

Harry is a Captain in the Blues and Royals. It became obvious fairly early on that he would not be able to serve in Afghanistan as a soldier. The secondment (which only happened after having passed rigorous aptitude tests) would enable him to serve in Afghan - as long as he passed his training.

He has said that he wishes to be full soldier and therefore has to go through competitive promotions sstem how. His squadron are not returning to Afghan and therefore he went back to the Blues and Royals in order to work for promotion and work on Invictus Games

Harry isn't a aide de camp to the Queen. William was made one in 2013. The braid worn by Harry is part of the full dress uniform for officers in the Household Calvary. William has little EIIR on his shoulder plus the braid on his uniform as a ADC.

ADC...not!

Thanks all. I assumed that it was part of his uniform but always good to have confirmation.
