THE Duchess of Cambridge was among the crown jewels at Garter Day yesterday as she and European royals stepped out in style.

Speaking of Meghan, the new mother did not attend the Order of the Garter service.

They were watched by the Duchess of Cambridge, Duchess of Cornwall, Countess of Wessex and the two foreign Queens - the Spanish monarch's wife Queen Letizia, and Queen Maxima, wife of the Dutch king.

The Prince of Wales, The Duke of Cambridge, The Duke of York & Earl of Wessex are all Knights of the Garter.

The royal women all looked stylish in wide-brimmed hats, with the Duchess of Cambridge wearing a Catherine Walker coat and Lock & Co hat, while Camilla was dressed in an Anna Valentine coat and Philip Treacy hat.

Yesterday, members of the royal family gathered for the Order of the Garter ceremony in Windsor, England.

This year, the Queen invited King Felipe of Spain and King William-Alexander of the Netherlands to the ceremony, where they were both made Stranger Knights of the Garter. The Order includes The Queen, who is Sovereign of the Garter, The Duke of Cambridge and several senior Members of the Royal Family, and twenty-four knights or ladies chosen in recognition of their work.

The Order of the Garter is the oldest order of chivalry in Britain, and was established by King Edward III in 1348.

"Knights of the Garter are chosen personally by the Sovereign to honour those who have held public office, who have contributed in a particular way to national life or who have served the Sovereign personally", a statement from Kensington Palace said.

Felipe was appointed to the Order of the Garter by the Queen during his July 2017 state visit while Willem-Alexander received the honour during his state visit in October previous year.

Earlier in the day there will be a private Investiture in the Garter throne room at Windsor Castle, where a Lady Companion, Lady Mary Peters, and a Knight Companion, Robert Gascoyne-Cecil, the Marquess of Salisbury, will be invested with the Order's insignia by the Queen.

Also, while it's true that Queen Letizia and Middleton didn't show any sisterly rapport, they actually showed some commonality at the event. Neither did her husband Prince Harry.
