The most exclusive royal orders of knighthood based on the current number of members (including Royal Family and foreign members) are:



1. Order of the Golden Fleece (Spain), established in 1430: King Felipe VI plus 16 living knights (including 2 Spanish royals and 10 foreign royals).


2. Order of the Thistle (UK/Scotland), established in 1687: Queen Elizabeth II plus 19 living knights (including 4 British royals).


3. Order of the Garter (UK/England), established in 1348: Queen Elizabeth II plus 38 living knights (including 9 British royals and 8 foreign royals)
.


4. Order of the Elephant (Denmark), established 1693: Queen Margrethe II plus 65 living knights (including 8 Danish royals and 34 foreign royals).


5. Order of the Seraphim (Sweden), established 1748: King Carl XVI Gustaf plus 88 living knights (including 17 Swedish royals and 35 foreign royals).




Notes
  • Only single-class orders awarded by reigning monarchs were considered.
  • The figures above are from Wikipedia and may have a margin of error, especially for the orders of the Elephant and the Seraphim.
  • The generic term "knight" in the list above includes both male and female members.

Kings Felipe VI & Willem-Alexander were the last foreign royal additions to date and the duchess of Cornwall will have her installation and investiture ceremony this year.

With the induction of the Duchess of Cornwall and Sir Tony Blair and the demise of the Duke of Edinburgh, item 3 above is updated to


Order of the Garter (UK/England), established in 1348: Queen Elizabeth II plus 39 living knights (including 9 British royals and 8 foreign royals).
