After a two-year break, Garter Day has taken place again. Camilla celebrated her official induction into the Order of the Garter.

As every year in June, on Monday, on the occasion of Garter Day, the royals marched together in traditional costume from Windsor Castle to the service in St. George’s Chapel. On the day of honor for the members of the Order of the Garter, Prince Charles (73), his son Prince William (39) and Duchess Camilla (74) threw themselves in the dark blue velvet robe with a red sash and also wore hats with lavish ostrich feathers.

Camilla was only made a member of the Order of the Garter by Queen Elizabeth II (96) earlier this year – a great honor. This is considered one of the most respected orders in Europe. Only 24 non-royals may belong to it, who are personally selected by the queen.

Also present at the ceremony were Duchess Kate (40), Countess Sophie von Wessex (57) and Prince Edward (58), Princess Anne (71) and Camilla’s children Tom Parker Bowles (47) and Laura Lopes (44).

Garter Day without Prince Andrew

However, many curious Brits may have missed Prince Andrew (62) at the spectacle. There has recently been speculation about his participation. However, a palace spokesman announced just before the ceremony began that Andrew would not be attending Garter Day. Accordingly, this was a “family decision”. According to “Mirror”, he is said to have been present at lunch with the Queen at Windsor Castle.

Garter Day is a day of honor for members of the Order of the Garter. Dressed in the traditional garb of the Order of Chivalry, members and the Royals march from Windsor Castle towards St George’s Chapel to attend a service. Because of Corona, Garter Day was last held in 2019.
