The Queen is expected to be joined by the Prince of Wales, Duke of Cambridge and other senior royals in St George's Chapel at Windsor Castle for the service.

According to the royal family's official website, the Order of the Garter was established by King Edward III almost 700 years ago and is now considered "the oldest and most senior Order of Chivalry in Britain".

Other royals in attendance were the Duchess of Cambridge, the Duchess of Cornwall and the Duchess of the Countess of Wessex.

The watching royal women all looked stylish in wide-brimmed hats, with Kate wearing a Catherine Walker coat and Lock & Co hat, Camilla dressed in an Anna Valentine coat and Philip Treacy hat, and Sophie wearing a Suzannah dress and Jane Taylor hat. She accessoried her pretty dress with drop-down pearl earrings, a black clutch and matching black pumps. Meanwhile, Queen Letizia, who was snapped chatting with the British duchess, wore a white patterned dress from Spanish label Cherubina and pointed-toe black leather stilettos.

The knights were traditionally limited to aristocracy but now include both men and women from a variety of different backgrounds.

"The Duchess of Sussex has never attended and will probably not attend until Harry is named".

Felipe was appointed by the Queen during his July 2017 state visit while Willem-Alexander received the honour during his state visit in October 2018.

Every June, hundreds of spectators watch as Garter Knights walk through Windsor Castle accompanied by senior royals in what is one of the most traditional ceremonies in the Queen's calendar.

The home of the Order is St George's Chapel, at Windsor Castle, and each Knight has a banner of his arms in the Chapel, together with a helmet, crest and sword and an enamelled stallplate.
