Whitney, Katie, Megan, Susie and part of John at Windsor Castle

This picture is taken in the courtyard outside of St. George's Chapel.
The Knights belonging to the Order of the Garter are recognized inside.
I spoke to the docent and he was very adament that I know that their is a difference between being knighted and being a Knight. Elton John has been "knighted", a gimick of sorts and only those who have defended the sovereign are among those in the Garter.
Did you know that Sir Edmund Hillary (1st to climb Mt. Everest) is a Knight.
