Suppose it's too late to appoint a new member now, with the service 2 weeks away....

The Queen normally announces new members on St George's Day which she did this year.

It would also be bad form to create a replacement knight before the deceased holder's garter etc have been returned to the Sovereign and that won't happen for a few months at least.

It would also be bad form to announce a new knight so soon after the death of a knight - while the family is still in mourning.

Since today is Garter Day, I decided to post this rare video of Her Majesty Queen Mary and Their Majesties The King & Queen attending the Order of the Garter Ceremony in 1937-

It's Garter Day at Windsor. The Queen and members of her family will attend a service at St George's Chapel at 3pm.

Richard Palmer @RoyalReporter 1m
The Duchess of Cornwall is missing from Garter Day here in Windsor, with a bad cold. The Duchess of Cambridge is expected, aides say.

Catherine and Sophie arrived together by car.

The Duchess of Cambridge has arrived by car at St George's Chapel with the Countess of Wessex.

Catherine and Sophie. Sophie's father is the man in the far left of the image.

Sophie's, The Countess of Wessex, ensemble is odd.

I hated that dress on Sophie last year at the Coronation Festival Concert and I hate it again this year. I think it would be nice without the feather addition.

Order of the Garter 2003-2014: Ceremonies and Information

I liked that Kate sat next to her father in Law instead of Charles sitting by himself for the drive back up to the castle.
