The Dames of the Order of St. George support the Knights in fulfilling the charitable tasks set out in the principles of the Order. The aim is, according to a European Order, to achieve a blanket presence to ensure that charitable work is carried out across the breadth of the Order.

As the Order considers itself to be elitist, Dames are only admitted on the basis of a verified proposal by a Knight or Dame of the Order and after completion of the intended qualifying period, as well as fulfilment of the defined criteria. The Dames of the Order of St. George are subordinate to the Grand Master HIRH Karl von Habsburg and the Order Government.
