King Charles And Queen Camilla's Historic Portrait With Prince William And Prince Edward Have Triggers Questions

The photo, taken after the Thistle Service at St Giles’ Cathedral in Edinburgh, shows the four royals dressed in the green Mantle of the Order of the Thistle velvet robes, white-plumed hats, and gleaming Thistle Stars.

While many royal watchers praised the “beautiful” photograph, it also prompted questions from some followers. They wondered why the Duchess of Edinburgh was not included in the picture or wearing robes, despite attending the service.

The reason is that Sophie is not a Lady of the Thistle – the highest honour in Scotland. This distinction is a personal gift from the King, and she may be honoured with it in the future.

Prince Edward was appointed to the Order on his 60th birthday in March, and Queen Camilla received the honour in June 2023.

The Order of the Thistle has 16 knights and ladies, plus additional Royal Knights of the Thistle, including the Queen, the Princess Royal, and the Duke of Rothesay (Prince of Wales in Scotland).

Princess Anne did not attend the service as she is still recovering from a recent concussion. The Princess of Wales was also absent due to her ongoing cancer treatment.

Those made Thistle Knights or Ladies are recognized for their public service or significant contributions to national life.

The Queen was appointed chancellor of the University of Aberdeen in 2013 and in a speech to mark the 10th anniversary of her role at the institution, she said: “Coming to this university, and to this city, has always felt a bit like coming home to me. Firstly because my father’s family came from this part of Scotland, secondly because my husband and I are lucky enough to spend precious time each year in Aberdeenshire, and finally because 10 years ago, I received the great honour of being installed as chancellor of this very special university.”
