Are the shades of Pemberley to be thus polluted?

Nice photos. Considering how warm the weather has been in June over the last few years, that outfit with the velvet cloak and great big hat, must be really uncomfortable.

Interesting...I didn't know that Princess Alexandra was a member of the Order of the Garter.  Nice pictures.

She hasn't been a member for very long; according to the Royal Family website it was 2003.

Just love the Order of the Garter- so much more sensible than other royal family orders which are just a handout to each other's families. Love the outfits too.

Agreed.  You can't just be born or married into this Order unlike most of the others.

Well, it is a personal gift of the Sovereign so she doesn't need the Prime Minister's binding advice.  It is given for exception service and it pertains to England rather than the whole of the United Kingdom (Scotland has the Order of the Thistle).  Although the Sovereign can give this to anyone she wants (the Order is limited to 25 members, except for British Royal Family and foreign monarchs who are 'supernumerary' members) she waited until her own sons, Andrew and Edward, were in their 40s when she gave them the Order. None of the Queen's daughters-in-law have ever received the Order.   

All of the other monarchs hand out their prestigious Orders to family members and visiting royals like they are party favors.

Thank you Ugly Betty. i like that order then. the Queen knows what is substantive so the order does not get cheapened. the more that i admire and respect Her Majesty. this is really in line with Merits outside the royal world, not the usual pomp and pageantry that most royals are perceived to be.
