The record for the receipt of Royal Family Orders is held jointly by HM Queen Mary and HRH Princess Alice, Countess of Athlone (wife of the Earl of Athlone, Governor General of Canada).

Order of the Garter: Information From Answers.com (3873 words)
Whilst the Order of the Thistle was certainly in existence by the sixteenth century and possibly has mediæval origins (or even, according to more fanciful legends, dates to the eighth century), the foundation of the institution in its modern form dates only to 1687.
At any rate, the Order was most probably not constituted before 1346; the original statutes required that each member admitted to the Order already be a knight (what would today be called a knight bachelor), and several initial members of the Order were first knighted in that year.
The office of Prelate is held by the Bishop of Winchester, traditionally one of the senior bishops of the Church of England.
