At best I could imagine Carole or Mike getting an MBE in the future for their business or perhaps for some local charitable work. A life peerage seems kind of pointless. There is no need to ennoble them. Catherine coming from a middle class English family was one of the points in her favour anyway. Its not the middle ages after all.

I'm hoping an honour will be coming the Middletons way at some point in the future.

Of course there are some questionable honours but that's the government talking;

Dishonours! Gongs for water boss who put up bills, police chief who failed tragic Victoria Climbie, hedge fund tycoon who bankrolls Tories and, oh yes, a Labour luvvie | Mail Online

As good a list as I can get for celebrities;

The Right Honourable Sir (Walter) Menzies Campbell CBE QC MP is made a Companion of honour.

Tony Robinson aka Baldrick from Blackadder is made a Knight Bachelor

Adele, Rob Brydon, singer and broadcaster Aled Jones, singer-songwriter PJ Harvey, and author Joanne Harris are given an MBE.

Clare Balding, Jackie Collins, golfer Paul Lawrie, GQ editor Dylan Jones and author Kate Mosse are given an OBE's.

Entrepreneur and former Dragon’s Den star Hilary Devey was ‘flabbergasted’ to receive a CBE for services to the transport industry and to charity.

Restauranteur Jill Stein, the ex-wife of TV chef Rick Stein, is made an OBE. She runs a business in Padstow, Cornwall, with her former husband, who received the same honour ten years ago.

Artist Grayson Perry, actress Claire Bloom and Thomas Heatherwick, designer of the Olympic Cauldron, also receive CBEs.
An OBE goes to Wendy Parry, whose 12-year-old son Tim was one of two children killed by an IRA bomb in Warrington in March 1993.

Though Peter Phillips isn't entitled to princely rank as a female line grandchild of the British monarch... is it not somewhat unfair that he's being passed over for honors such as the Garter & Thistle?

No - it isn't - the ones who get those honous actually work for the monarch.

Prince Michael - a male-line grandson - doesn't have the garter or thistle because he hasn't worked predominantly for the monarch and Peter is the same.

He is the same as the sons of Princess Mary and Princess Margaret - who are related but not workers and as those other sons haven't been so honoured why should Peter?

The Queen makes her family earn their honours, except for those honours that she can't control e.g. Charles getting the Garter in 1958 as it is automatic for the Prince of Wales. She made her younger sons wait until their mid-late 40s and her daughter about the same - and to work for her - the same with her cousins - they had to work for her to get it and not just get it for being her cousins, and descendents of a monarch through either male or female lines.

Completely agree, the only person in the Royal Family to have an honour of any kind but not work for the Queen is Zara who got it for her sporting success in teh same way any other sports person would.

I think The Queen waits too long to give her immediate family members an honor for their work within the "Firm."

She makes them actually earn them rather than getting them for simply being royal and doing a few things - just as an ordinary person has to earn an honour. I think she is right to do so.

I don't think she waits too long, she made Sophie a Dame Grand Cross of the Royal Victorian Order after 10 years of working for the firm and Camilla after 7 years. I think thats a reasonable amount of time for them to show that they can stick at it. Maybe the 90's divorces taught her to wait and watch a little bit more.
As for her children bear in mind that until 2001/2002 Edwards and Andrew both had other jobs so did not work full time representing the Queen and doing public duties. They were both made Commanders of the RoyalVictorian Order in their early days (19 for Andrew and 25 for Edward) and I think for part time members of the family as they were that was about right. The Queen gave them higher honours pretty steadily once they started working for her full time.

I don't know, I just think she waits too long. I hope Charles won't wait very long to give William & Catherine and Harry honors once he's King.
