The Order Of The Garter…

On Monday 17th June 2019 the Queen appointed Lord Salisbury to be a Knight Companion of the Most Noble Order of the Garter.

The Order of the Garter is an order of chivalry founded by Edward III in 1348 and regarded as the most prestigious British order of chivalry in England and the United Kingdom. Appointments are made at the Sovereign’s sole discretion. Membership of the Order is limited to the Sovereign, the Prince of Wales, and no more than 24 living members, or Companions.

Garter Day 2019 took place yesterday at Windsor Castle and was attended by the Queen, Prince Charles, Prince William along with other members of the Royal Family.
