Description:
The Society of the Friends of St George's and Descendants of the Knights of the Garter is a constituent group of the Foundation of the College of St George, Windsor Castle which is a national charity in England. The society includes more than 5,100 members worldwide (including more than 900 AmFriends members of the American Friends of St George's and Descendants of the Knights of the Garter Inc.) to "protect, preserve and enhance" the college, its St George's Chapel at Windsor Castle and the royal chivalric knighthood, the Order of the Garter.

The ongoing project for 2009 is to clean and restore the chapel West Window which is one of the largest in any English church with its collection of late-medieval stained-glass.

People interested in the society and its traditions and service may join as its members.
