Changing Guard Photo Album - Garter Service 2015

Photographer: David M Whitecross | Date: 15th June 2015

The Most Noble Order of the Garter, founded in 1348, is the highest order of chivalry and the United Kingdoms third most prestigious honour, only inferior to the Victoria Cross and George Cross.

The Garter Service is an important day in the royal calendar when the Garter Knights gather at Windsor Castle to celebrate the ancient order.

The military, and The Queen's historic bodyguards, play an important part in the proceedings and these photographs, by David Whitecross capture some of what those who apply for tickets, and are lucky enough to be invited will see.
