Because it would be some kind of an insult to the Queen, and to the other female members of the BRF.
I think the Duchess of Cambridge is just not the kind of woman to make such a statement for now...
And if she is really so passionate about it, alternatives to ivory exist. An order sans ivory could be made especially for her ...

Love the Queen's jewelery set....those sapphires are stunning!

Not really impressed with Kate's dress...the color is wonderful, not a fan of the top of it. Love her bling even if understated ...but I think that's her personal style too...figure it will be a long long time before we see her in serious bling.

They do take years to get, in some cases. As I said, Sophie didn't get hers until 2004.

And I would love the proof that Camilla didn't wear hers for her first state banquet?



Now that is a good point. Although, if the Duchess is joining her husband in his conservation efforts, then I would say she should never wear it. Choosing not to wear it just for this dinner would, imo, fall flat if she chooses to wear it in the future. If one is turning their back on something, in this case the ivory, then one must always come through. So if she wears it in the future, then I would say either she hasn't received it or her statement falls flat. If there is a statement to be made, of course.
No, Camilla did not wear her RFO during her first State Banquet-

Mbruno - careful how you impugn the significance of Margaret. She is spinning in her grave as we speak.

Not sure I'm buying the ivory spin, but that could be the case though. I just think Catherine should have the Royal Family Order of Queen Elizabeth II by now. If not now, then she should have it (if) she attends the Royal Reception for the Diplomatic Corps later this year. She's been a senior member of the royal family for nearly 5 years, has conducted several foreign royal tours on behalf of The Queen and has given birth to two heirs to the British throne. She deserves her RFO!

Does the queen really have one more free RFO? Or it is necessary to find diamonds, to make a miniature, etc. It's quite expensive thing

She's not a full-time member, so the Queen may not feel she deserves it yet.

I have no idea if the ivory issue is valid. It's just speculation and is one of the many reasons that I've seen being given for Kate not wearing an order. Unless the Palace comes out with an explanation, we will likely never know why she's not wearing one yet.

I don't think her not being a full-time member of the royal family have much to do with her not having her RFO yet. It may be The Queen is waiting to give it to her as a 5th wedding anniversary or as a present to help celebrate Her Majesty's 90th birthday next year. She and William are pretty much making their way to full-time royal roles now.

I'm just saying, Catherine deserves her RFO by now.

Apologies, I misunderstood in my haste reading. I thought the implication was that Camilla received the RFO and then chose not to wear it to her first state banquet after that. I know she did not receive the RFO until well after her first state banquet in 2005.

Does anyone have any guesses about what Madame Peng's brooch on today's white arrival suit is meant to be? A leaf, a flower and ? I can't figure it out but do love it!

To imagine that HM is displeased with Kate in some way is truly absurd! How wonderful that she is able to conduct a 4 day visit with all that it entails. Of course Diana and Camilla are/were POW, something that Kate is not.

Finally someone who said something, and I agree with you.

And to those of you who are surprised/disappointed because Kate has not received the RFO, and wonder why hasn't she? First - It was the Daily Fail who wrote that she received it.
Second - She is not a full time working royal, and I'm sure she will receive it when she is, maybe before.

I agree with you. Sarah didn't receive any order, but she was close to the Queen and still is.

If the Queen was displeased with Katherine I don't think she would've let her wear the bracelet Prince Philip gave her as a wedding present.

You're completely right, and she will receive the RFO with time.
