I'm so pleased and proud for Camilla. She is the first future consort to be appointed to the Garter before becoming consort. She has more than earned this. And doesn't she look terrific!!!

Birgitte looks beautiful too, I especially love that shade of hat!! Anne also knows how to rock the Garter apparel. I think it'll be a long while before Kate is admitted to the Order, perhaps only once Charles is King, given the significance of Camilla being admitted prior to becoming consort. But I hope that Sophie is able to be admitted, and I hope that it is Her Majesty who is able to admit her reportedly favoruite d-i-l to the Order.

I doubt state visits are high on the agenda for the moment, but I would love to see Good King Phil admitted too!

Iíd love to see Sophie admitted but I do think itís highly unlikely as she isnít a future Queen.  I donít think any other ďin lawĒ has been awarded it so I donít think Sophie will. Shame really but I guess itís tradition.

I was just watching a video on GettyImages of the procession and I saw Sophie and Catherine curtsy to Charles (and Camilla) as he walked past and I was surprised. I donít think Iíve ever seen them curtsy to him but I guess it was because he was representing the Queen?  Or is this now the norm?

The way I understand, they curtsy to those of higher rank the first time they see them but not after that.....where is luvcharles, he'll know  Smiley

I think Sophie should be recognized too, she's really fulfilled an unexpected role beautifully.

There was a very important first at the Garter Ceremony: Baroness Amos (formerly Secretary of Stare for International Development and Leader of the House of Lords) joined the Order of the Garter. Baroness Amos has broken through a lot of glass ceilings and been a pioneer in many ways, and is the first black person to join the Order to date.

Thank you for sharing this (the milestone and the anecdote!).  It's a shame that this is the first I (and probably many of us) have read about this; it seems it rather got overshadowed by Camilla and Tony Blair.

I remember reading about it in an article detailing who was joining this year. Then the brouhaha started over Andrew's attendance and it slipped my mind.

I have to say it is surprising that she is the first black person to become a Knight.

Congratulations to Baroness Amos.  Champagne
