I know what stranger knights are - the focus of the question was more on the Japanese aspect. Why is the Emperor of Japan always made a stranger knight (as opposed to any other foreign sovereign that might be made a stranger knight)?

Britain went into an alliance with Japan in 1902 which would account for the Emperor Meiji and his son being 'stranger knights'. Hirohito was made a stranger knight as well when Britain and Japan were allies. He was stripped of his Garter as a result of Japan's aggression in the 30s and 40s but was re-instated when Britain and Japan were friends again and he visited the UK. Tradition would therefore mean that as the two countries are close allies and friends that they acknowledge that relationship with the highest order of knighthood.

The Garter ceremony began in 1948 when King George VI brought back formal installation for the first time since 1805.

So no Kate or George at Garter today, I understand. We'll have to focus on the Knights of the Garter instead.

I was surprised Catherine didn't attend the Garter service, since she did attend Trooping of The Colour. I haven't seen many pictures of the royal ladies attending either.

I agree, I think she should have attended. She has been at the Trooping and the polo last weekend, I think she should have attended the Garter service as well.

She may not have wanted to leave Charlotte with the nanny for a third day in a row. She's technically still on maternity leave

Perhaps that is the reason why she didn't attend. She's got two kids to juggle now. I just thought she would have made it to the Garter service. Hopefully she's getting back into her official duties now.

I think it will be some time still. Charlotte is six weeks old and standard maternity leave is at least 12 weeks, often much longer. I imagine we'll see her at the big things but it will take longer for her to start doing her normal engagements.

The Queen, accompanied by others members of the royal family, attended the annual Order of the Garter Service at St George's Chapel in Windsor Castle - June 15, 2015.

Charlotte's only five weeks old, I very much doubt Kate is going to be resuming many royal duties any time soon. I wouldn't consider Trooping to be an indication that she's getting back to things yet - I suspect she attended that in large part for family reasons (as it's the Queen's official birthday, and they also decided that it was time for George's first balcony appearance).

I wonder why The Duke of Edinburgh missed the Garter Service?

Kate didn't go to see her husband at the Garter Ceremony because she was obviously too exhausted after running around after George at the polo. Ceremonies like the Garter are rather boring.

I imagine Kate didn't go because she is still on maternity leave. If I'm remembering correctly, it was stated that she would be on leave for a few months - at least for most of the summer. She more than likely attended Trooping for two reasons. One because it's a family celebration and two because it was George's first time on the balcony.

The media seemed upset she wouldn't go... It was not certain nor confirm, so they simply let themselve down...
