It was a special day for Camilla, who was in the procession for the first time having been appointed a Royal Lady of the Order of the Garter.

"A key element of Garter Day is the investing of new Companions with the Order's Insignia. This is done by The Queen, The Sovereign of the Garter, in the Throne Room," the caption on the Queen's photo read.
