The Queen joined by Royal Family for the traditional ceremony

The Order of the Garter ceremony has taken place at St. George’s Chapel, Windsor. The Queen invested King Felipe of Spain and King Willem-Alexander of the Netherlands as Supernumerary Knights ahead of the service as well as formally welcoming Lord Salisbury and Dame Mary Peters as a Knight and Lady Companion respectively.

There were big crowds to watch the procession to the Chapel ahead of the service and to see the royal guests, including the Duchess of Cornwall and the Duchess of Cambridge alongside Queen Maxima of the Netherlands and Queen Letizia of Spain, following the ancient ceremony. Royal Central rounds up the best photos of a royal day to remember.
