The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall attended the #GarterDay service today at Windsor Castle alongside other Members of the Royal Family.
This annual event celebrates the Order of the Garter – the most senior British Order of Chivalry - which dates back to 1348.
The Queen is Sovereign of the Garter and several senior Members of the Royal Family, including The Prince of Wales and The Duke of Cambridge, make up twenty-five knights chosen in recognition of their work.
The Knights are chosen from a variety of backgrounds, in recognition for public service.
The King of Spain and The King of the Netherlands also attended this year’s Garter Day, during which they were installed in St. George’s Chapel as Supernumerary, or ‘Stranger’, Knights of the Garter.
The Garter Day tradition dates back over 700 years when, in medieval times, King Edward III was inspired by tales of King Arthur and the chivalry of the Knights of the Round Table that he set up his own group of honourable knights, called the Order of the Garter.
