Friday marked a day of preparations for garter Day here in the Castle. An early start for those involved in the military duties of lining the route of the procession, providing music for the day and leading the processions.
Here are a few snaps from my window!
The precision and attention to detail are quite remarkable – a small insight into the sheer levels of energy and work that go into these days.
And a brief reminder about Garter Day:
Garter Day takes place on Monday 13 June. This year two new Knights of the Garter will be invested and installed; they are Admiral Lord Boyce and Lord Phillips of Worth Matravers. The investiture takes place on the morning of Garter Day in the Garter Throne Room in the State Apartments of Windsor Castle; the installation takes place at the beginning of the Service in St George’s Chapel during the afternoon.
