Maybe a Knight of the Garter will be offered?

A Garter is never offered .. it is appointed. Philippe will not get the Garter until a State visit Baudouin made a state visit in 1963 -- that was the last one. but it will be up to the UK government to extend an invitation to the Belgian government for a state visit. Only then would the king be appointed to the Garter

Thanks for the information.

Do you know if there's a particular reason Philippe and Mathilde were there for this event? Do they have a connection with the Royal Hospital Chelsea or the Chelsea Pensioners?
