The Superintendent of Windsor Castle has very kindly sent the Mayor an allocation of tickets for distribution to Members and officers of the Council to enable them to witness the Procession of the Most Noble Order of the Garter in the grounds of Windsor Castle on the afternoon of Monday 13 June 2022.

The Order of the Garter is the most senior and the oldest British Order of Chivalry and was founded by Edward III in 1348.  If there are new Companions of the Order of the Garter, The Queen formally invests them with the insignia in the Throne Room of Windsor Castle on Garter Day.  Afterwards The Queen will entertain them at a lunch in the Waterloo Chamber.  After lunch they process to a service of thanksgiving at St George’s Chapel, wearing their blue velvet robes and black velvet hats with white plumes.
