Windsor Uniform

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:

    He may be a very nice man. But I haven’t got the time to figure that out. All I know is, he’s got a uniform and a gun and I have to relate to him that way. That’s the only way to relate to him because one of us may have to die.
    James Baldwin (1924–1987)
