The girls were out in force at the historic Order of the Garter service at Windsor Castle today.
Looking pretty in pastels, the Duchess of Cambridge, the Duchess of Cornwall and Countess of Wessex laughed and gossiped as they waited for their husbands to come into view.
And the men didn’t look bad either – each of the princes (Charles, William, Edward) was dressed to the nines in the traditional blue velvet cloak of the Garter Order and a hat boasting an eye-catching plume of heron and ostrich feathers.
Founded by King Edward 111 in 1348, the Order of the Garter is the country’s oldest order of chivalry and the last remaining honour to be given at the discretion of the sovereign.
