Prince William attended the Garter Day service at Windsor Castle in the absence of his wife, Kate Middleton. The traditional celebration, marking the ancient Order of the Garter, saw the participation of King Charles, Queen Camilla, and other members of the royal family, signaling the start of the busy royal summer season.

William celebrated the day by writing, “Celebrating the Order of the Garter in Windsor today. A timeless tradition for over six centuries that recognizes public service across a variety of backgrounds. With thanks to Lady Companion of the Garter Baroness Amos for her insight”, reported GB News.

Garter Day is an annual event that honors new appointments to the senior and oldest British Order of Chivalry. After the service, the Royal Family returned to the castle by carriage.

Notably, Prince Andrew did not attend either the Garter Day service or Trooping the Colour. This year’s Garter Day saw King Charles appoint Baroness Manningham-Buller to the office of Chancellor of the Order of the Garter and Lord Ashton of Hyde as the Master of the Horse.

The absence of Kate Middleton from this important event was noticeable, but the presence of senior royals underscored the continuity and significance of the Order of the Garter. The event celebrated the contributions of distinguished individuals and highlighted the royal family’s dedication to upholding longstanding traditions.

As the royal family continues its engagements throughout the summer, the Order of the Garter remains a key highlight, reflecting centuries of history and the ongoing commitment to public service.
