If he decides to give honours! The practice dates back to around 1800,

Oh, I believe he will give Orders to his family. Charles loves formality, ceremonies, Orders and other honors.

William will already have most of the available honours anyway - either because The Queen has given it to him - garter, thistle, or because as heir to the throne it is automatic.

As for Harry - he needs to do at least as much as Andrew and Edward - and so far he hasn't. He will have to stop his almost annual major embarassment for the family and grow up - he is nearly 30 not 20 and yet behaves too often like a teenager.

I am just curious- what takes the Cabinet Office so long to decide on a knighthood?
In 2010, I wrote the Queen with the suggestion that actor Robert Hardy be knighted. They wrote back, and said write the Prime Minister. I did, they wrote back, and said write the cabinet office. I did. A minister wrote back, and said thanks for the suggestion, that it takes 18 months to decide. What takes so long?
Anybody else think he should be knighted?

Have you considered the possibility that it has been offered and declined? Not everyone accepts honours when first offered to them and some never do accept the honours.

That is true. Never thought of that.

I think a stable marriage will make Harry more "honorable" in the Queen's eyes, because I think she does not hand them out, but uses them to reflect valid life milestones and demonstrated service.
Not that I think Harry should rush into anything just to get an honor. In fact, I think he will be much happier continuing on in active service and is probably not very keen on external affirmations like the Garter and Thistle. Military honors for active combat seem more to his fancy.

I actually think Harry will receive an honor from The Queen at some point soon.

Hope this is the right thread.

New Years Honours have been announced http://t.co/JwNVX5NjmP

However for Royal watchers, the Queens Private Secretary has been made a Knight Commander of the Order of the Bath

These are the notes from the Royal website

Knight Commander of the Order of the Bath (KCB)

The Right Honourable Sir Christopher Geidt KCVO OBE

Sir Christopher has been Private Secretary to Her Majesty The Queen since 2007.
He has brought to this key role a new approach to constitutional matters (including at
the time of the formation of the Coalition Government), the preparation for the
transition to a change of Reign
and relations with the Commonwealth. He has also
overseen an unprecedented agenda of Royal and national events.

Very strange to see that in print

Sir Marcus Setchell, the doctor who helped delivered Prince George last July, is to be knighted at Buckingham Palace on Tuesday.

Apparent William is doing the investiture today so he gets to knight Sir Marcus which is neat.

Prince William today knighted Sir Marcus Setchell, the royal doctor who delivered George, and spoke about his bouncing baby boy.

Richard Palmer ‏@RoyalReporter 1h
William had an animated conversation at a Buckingham Palace investiture with Sir Marcus after knighting him with a ceremonial sword.

Australia to reintroduce Knights and Dames as the highest level of the Order of Australia.

The first to be so knighted will be the outgoing Governor-General - Quentin Bryce - to be Dame Quentin Bryce. Strange that she would accept such an honour - given that she is a confirmed republican and even made that comment while being the Queen's official representative in Australia.

Tony Abbott reintroduces knight and dame honours for Australians

The incoming GG will be the first new knight - so Sir Peter Cosgrove while Quentin Bryce will be the first Dame - Dame Quentin Bryce.

Others who will be eligible will be State Governors, chiefs of the defence forces and chief justices but not politicians.

Doubt that this will go down well in Australia.

If the actual changes to the statutes of the Order of Australia are made before Friday, it sounds like she'll become a dame automatically.
