Order of Garter Service

The Order of Garter is the UK's highest honors and is personally given by the Queen. The order is limited to 24 members, plus the Monarch, members of the British Royal Family and Foreign Monarchs.

The Order of Garter service is held each year on either the 1st or 2nd Monday for Trooping the Colours. The service is attended by all the British members of the order (if they are able) and their spouses. We only see extended family when a person is being invested.

Foreign Monarchs usually only attend when they are invested and on extra special years, like the Queen's Golden Jubilee.

Schedule 
  • Invest new members in the Throne room at Windsor Castle
  • Lunch at Windsor Castle
  • Walk to St. George's Chapel (3 PM)
    • Queen arrives by Car

                            Royal Attendance at Household Division's Beating Retreat (2000-Present)

                            Household Divison's Beating Retreat is held the Wednesday & Thursday before Trooping the Colours. A Beating Retreat is a spectacular concert of music and military precision drill, including horses, cannon and fireworks.

                            Each year, a Member of the Royal Family attends the performance and takes the Salute. (Occasionally, we see a royal attend on each night.)

                            (Note: Various Military Regiments hold Beating Retreats throughout the year. This list only covers the Household Division's annual one before Trooping the Colours.)

                            Founders Day Parade at Royal Hospital Chelsea - Royal Attendance

                            Embed from Getty Images

                            The Royal Hospital Chelsea is a retirement/nursing home for 300+ veterans of the British Army.(Note: The older definition of a “hospital” just meant a charitable institution for the needy, old, sick, or young. And did not necessarily have anything to do with medicine.)

                            Each year, the hospital holds a parade to mark the hospital's founding by King Charles II (reigned 1660 -1685). The parade is usually held in late May/early June, close to King Charles II's birthday (May 29nd). The parade is attended each year by a member of the Royal Family.

                            The Sussexs have a difficult task of balancing the public's interest in their child and giving their Archie a private life, free of intrusion. One of the ways the Sussexs deal with this is to release a photo of their son every few once and awhile.

                            Royal attendance is not usually announced in advance (except for those attending in an official capacity). But look out for:

                            The Royals almost always sit in the Royal Box at Centre Court. The day's matches in the Centre Court usually begin at 1 PM. Expect higher attendance during the 2nd week.
