The King of Spain made Knight of the Garter

Her Majesty the Queen has appointed His Majesty The King of Spain a Stranger Knight Companion of the Most Noble Order of the Garter (KG).

Her Majesty awarded the King the highest honour of the United Kingdom as part of the State Visit that His Majesty and Queen Letizia are currently undertaking in the UK.

The King’s father King Juan Carlos of Spain also holds the honour of Stranger Knight which he received in 1988, during the Queen’s State Visit to Spain.

The award also raises the possibility that the King will attend the next Order of the Garter Service in St George’s chapel, Windsor on the 18th June 2018.
