I was wondering, are there any pictures of Her Majesty wearing just the sash and star of the order of the thistle for a reception of gala? as i have never seen her wearing any of the regilia other then for the annual service when she wear it all. Has she ever worn just the sash and star (like she does with the order of the garter?)

many thanks inm advance if you can answer my question.
