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').

Famous quotes containing the word uniform:
“Iconic clothing has been secularized.... A guardsman in a dress uniform is ostensibly an icon of aggression; his coat is red as the blood he hopes to shed. Seen on a coat-hanger, with no man inside it, the uniform loses all its blustering significance and, to the innocent eye seduced by decorative colour and tactile braid, it is as abstract in symbolic information as a parasol to an Eskimo. It becomes simply magnificent.”
—Angela Carter (19401992)
