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.

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.

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

Orders of Australia

Like in Canada, the honours system in Australia includes both novel national Australian orders and UK/Commonwealth orders in the personal gift of the Sovereign. The national Australian orders properly do not currently confer knighthood although a grade of Knight/Dame of the Order of Australia (with the right to the use of the prefix Sir/Dame) was actively awarded between 1976 and 1983 and, most recently, in 2014-2015. Furthermore, unlike Canada, Australia still recognizes orders in the personal gift of the Sovereign that confer knighthood or grades within orders in the personal gift of the Sovereign that confer knighthood.


The current order of precedence for national Australian orders and UK/Commonwealth orders that are officially recognized in Australia is as follows (with the corresponding post-nominal letters on the left, Commowealth orders indicated in italics, and orders or grades that confer knighthood marked by an asterisk):


  • *KG/LG: Knight/Lady Companion of the Most Noble Order of the Garter
  • *KT/LT: Knight/Lady Companion of the Most Ancient and Most Noble Order of the Thistle
  • OM: Member of the Order of Merit
  • *AK/AD: Knight/Dame of the Order of Australia (currently dormant)
  • *GCVO: Knight/Dame Grand Cross of the Royal Victorian Order
  • AC: Companion of the Order of Australia
  • *KCVO/DCVO: Knight/Dame Commander of the Royal Victorian Order
  • AO: Officer of the Order of Australia
  • CVO: Commander of the Royal Victorian Order
  • AM: Member of the Order of Australia
  • LVO: Lieutenant of the Royal Victorian Order
  • MVO: Member of the Royal Victorian Order
As in Canada, the Order of the Bath, the Order of St Michael and St George, and the Order of the British Empire are now considered foreign orders in Australia, even though there are living Australian citizens who hold those orders.

Orders of Canada

Canada has its own system of orders of merit, which includes both orders in the personal gift of the Sovereign that are also awarded in the United Kingdom and other Commonwealth countries, and other novel national Canadian orders. In the case of Commonwealth orders, however, only grades that do not confer knighthood are awarded in Canada and, likewise, no national Canadian order confers knighthood.

New Canadian orders are always created by the Queen, as the Sovereign of the order, by Letters Patent under the Great Seal of Canada and the Royal Sign Manual, but are locally administered by the Governor General as Chancellor of the order. A category of Extra Companion now applies to members of the British Royal Family and also applies to former Governors General and their spouses; foreign citizens may be also appointed honorary companions, officers or members.

The precedence of the grades in the different national and Commonwealth orders currently awarded in Canada is as follows (with the corresponding post-nominal letters on the left column and Commonwealth orders indicated in italics):

  • OM: Member of the Order of Merit
  • CC: Companion of the Order of Canada
  • OC: Officer of the Order of Canada
  • CM: Member of the Order of Canada
  • CMM: Commander of the Order of Military Merit
  • COM: Commander of the Order of Merit of the Police Forces
  • CVO: Commander of the Royal Victorian Order
  • OMM: Officer of the Order of Military Merit
  • OOM: Officer of the Order of Merit of the Police Forces
  • LVO: Lieutenant of the Royal Victorian Order
  • MMM:Member of the Order of Military Merit
  • MOM: Member of the Order of Merit of the Police Forces
  • MVO: Member of the Royal Victorian Order
All UK orders other than the Order of Merit and the lower grades of the Royal Victorian Order that do not confer knighthood are now considered foreign orders in Canada and, as far as I understand, wearing them in Canada requires prior approval of the Canadian government.


Provincial Orders

Moreover, the different provinces of Canada also award their own orders of merit. Contrary to the national orders, however, the provincial orders are established directly by the respective Lieutenant Governor on the advice of the provincial government or by law passed by the respective Legislative Assembly. Provincial orders, therefore, rank lower than all national royal orders created by Letters Patent under the Royal Sign Manual.

As of today, precedence in the use of post-nominal letters of provincial orders is determined by chronological order of establishment of order. If an order has more than one grade, as in the case of the Ordre National du Québec, precedence is accorded to the higher grades over the lower ones. The current table of precedence, with the corresponding post-nominal letters on the left, is as follows:


  • GOQ: Grand officier de l'Ordre national du Québec
  • OQ: Officier de l'Ordre national du Québec
  • CQ: Chevalier de l'Ordre national du Québec
  • SOM: Saskatchewan Order of Merit
  • OOnt: Order of Ontario
  • OBC: Order of British Columbia
  • AOE: Alberta Order of Excellence
  • OPEI: Order of Prince Edward Island
  • OM: Order of Manitoba
  • ONB: Order of New Brunswick
  • ONS: Order of Nova Scotia
  • ONL: Order of Newfoundland and Labrador

Is anyone au fait with Spanish Orders? I gather that the city/region of Madrid has its own Order, the Order of the Dos de Mayo, which comes with a sash and a Grand Cross. I haven't come across a European city having its own order, as opposed to a national order, before, and am quite interested in this - are there any more?

Thanks.

I believe, however, that the Belgian and Dutch orders don't have collars, which was the topic of my original post.

I believe it depends on the regulations of each individual order. Collars like the collar of the Order of the Golden Fleece have to be returned to the order after the demise of a knight or member (as they are numbered and valuable, being made of precious metals), but, in general, other insignia like sashes, stars and badges may be kept by the family of the deceased. Can anybody else please confirm?

The King wore a collar on his wedding day with Doña Fabiola de Mora y Aragón, that does not look alike the Leopoldsorde. I think the collar of the Orden Isabel la Católica.

King Willem I (Sovereign over the three Benelux states) was given designs for collars for Orders for the new kingdom. But the King preferred simplicity and found the designs too ostentatious.
