Never Kent or Gloucester Princesses ?
For members of her family, HM seems to favour the Garter for only direct members of the family (i.e. of the Blood Royal) rather than those who have married into the British Royal family (such as the Duchesses of Gloucester, Kent and the Countess of Wessex) who usually progress through the ranks of The Royal Victorian Order instead.

I do not know if this is her preference or tradition. Queen Alexandra, Queen Mary and Queen Elizabeth (the Queen Mother) we Ladies of the Garter but only due to their elevation to consort.

Neither Princess Mary, Princess Royal (daughter of King George V and Queen Mary) or HM's sister Princess Margaret were Ladies of the Garter.

Princess (Queen) Beatrix and Queen Margrethe of Denmark are current Stranger Ladies of the Garter.

There is currently only one non-royal Lady of the Garter,
Elizabeth Lydia "Eliza" Manningham-Buller, Baroness Manningham-Buller.

The late Mary Soames, Baroness Soames (youngest child of Winston Churchill ) and Margaret Thatcher were also Ladies of the Garter.

Does he not wear his Garter star with a foreign order?
Dear Rudolph

You are correct that Prince Philip wore the Order of Merit as a neck badge but I think that the stars being worn were the Order of Charles III and his Garter Star.

The Order of the Garter only has precedence in England, not the throughout the UK.

Family Order

Heyyy everyone,
I want to know your opinion, i am about to create(in cooperation with other members of family) FAMILY ORDERS.We need to do this, because there is people which helped m, ancenstors and me, so we think it is the best way to show thankfullness by awarding with a family order. Of course, this is just a award from my family, not some state,(royal)or public decoration.We are just a small noble family nothing more.Send some designes or pictures of orders, help it

Garter is the highest order. When they go up there, Philip, Charles, Anne and William do not shift the "KG, KT" after their name to "KT, KG"
