The term Windsor uniform is used in two distinct ways, to refer to two different forms of courtly dress. In the UK, it is the name of a type of dress worn by male members of the Royal Family (and very senior courtiers) at Windsor Castle. In other parts of the Commonwealth (especially Canada), it is the name given to the uniform previously (and to some extent currently) worn by viceregal and other State dignitaries (which in the UK is usually termed 'Court uniform').
