It was Princess Alexandra who accompanied The Queen by car.

I think William was just left out the picture due to space. Everyone looked so crammed in the picture. I think it’s best to position everyone in the Hall lengthwise so you can fit everyone in.

There aren't normally any press cameras inside the chapel. It's vanishingly rare to see anything from the actual service.

Minor correction as Zenouska Mowatt is Princess Alexandra's granddaughter. She is the daughter of Marina Ogilvy and her ex-husband Paul Mowatt.

Order of the Garter 2003-2019: Ceremonies and Information

How bizarre that William wasn’t featured in that photo but was in attendance at the service. Very bad form from whoever. Perhaps he was delayed arriving..

Unfortunately the direct from the EFE agency is over.
How long will the ceremony take place in the chapel?

“The Duke of Cambridge and The Prince of Wales, watched on by The Duchess of Cornwall, The Queen of the Netherlands, and The Duchess of Cambridge, arrive for the #GarterDay service at St George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle.”

Do we know if King Phillippe of Belgium has already received the Order of the Garter?

He has not. He and his father before him (King Albert II) are the only monarchs of the Belgians not to have been honored with the Garter. Kings Leopold I, Leopold II, Albert I, Leopold III and Baudouin were all knights of the order.

The popular theory (here) is that he might have arrived late.

The order of the Garter is usually bestowed during State Visits. The King of the Belgian hasn't been in UK for a State Visit yet, so no Garter for him.

Not always during State Visits, but the latest years QEII seems to have coupled it to a State Visit indeed.

Grand-Duke Henri is without a Garter too. As well the new King of Thailand and the new Emperor of Japan, of course.

Thanks for the overview. It seems the only king not to havce received the Garter is King Willem II. His reign lasted only a few years of course.

He did receive the Order of Bath and the Army Gold Medal (aka Peninsular Gold Medal) which was accompanied by a golder cross. He must have been proud of the latter as he has worn it on several portraits and during his inauguration, it had two bars, representing the six battles he had fought in the Iberian peninsula (in comparison: the duke of Wellington had 9 bars representing 13 battles).

Nice to see the two Queens with the British royal ladies. The Duchess of Cambridge looks radiant.

It is likely that King Philippe will be made a knight of the Garter if he ever pays a state visit to the UK - and I see no reason why he won't.

The relationship between King Willem II and the British Court became sour:
- Princess Charlotte of Wales abruptly ended their engagement
- Princess Charlotte felt in love with exactly the later King of the "rebellious" Belgians
- The British supported the separatists in the Southern Netherlands, which would become Belgium
