The Order of the Garter is the oldest and most senior Order of Chivalry in Britain, and Louis-Philippe was delighted to be awarded the honour – the queen recorded in her journal that he thanked her and Albert repeatedly. The ceremony took place in the Garter Throne Room at Windsor Castle, which continues to be used for that purpose.
