Duke and Duchess of Cambridge join the Queen for Garter ceremony at Windsor

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were among the members of the royal family who joined the Queen for the annual Order of the Garter ceremony at Windsor Castle today.

Prince William, Prince Charles, Prince Edward, Prince Andrew, Princess Anne and the Duke of Edinburgh all accompanied the monarch in the procession of royal knights. Kate and Sophie, Countess of Wessex, watched on.

The royals then attended a service in St George's Chapel inside the castle grounds, where huge crowds had gathered to watch the occasion.

The new Knights of the Garter appointed at the ceremony were Baroness Eliza Manningham-Buller, former director general of MI5, and Lord Mervyn King, former governor of the Bank of England.

The Order was formed by King Edward III in 1348.

The ceremony marked the start of a busy week for the Queen, who is due to attend Royal Ascot, which begins tomorrow.

See Friday's Express for more photos from the Garter procession.
