Blair headed the British government between 1997 and 2007, winning three consecutive parliamentary elections as Labor leader, breaking a record in the party’s history. Tony Blair was elevated by the Queen to be a member of the Order of the Garter, one of the most exclusive knightly communities in the world, the British knee brace system that has existed since the 14th century.
The Order of the Garter, the highest order of the British Knights, of which there are only 25 members, is always a member of the ruling monarch, who can appoint new members to the other 24 seats in his own capacity without government recommendation. Members are entitled to bear the forename of Sir or Ladies. The former Labor leader is officially addressed on Saturday by Sir Tony Blair. Blair’s former conservative rival and immediate predecessor, Sir John Major is also a member of the Order of the Garter, for more than a decade now.
