No but the British and Spanish monarchs are close. On top of that Felipe and William get along quite well

State Visit from the King and Queen of Spain: July 12-14, 2017

China is a communist country. They probably don't have various national orders to give to foreign officials. I don't believe the US gives any foreign leaders/heads of state any sort of order.

Even if Meghan marries Harry, she is not expected to be given a British order anytime soon. Diana received the Queen's family order in 1981, but otherwise was not inducted into any state order while she was married to Charles. Sarah didn't get any order at all from the Queen AFAIK; Sophie, on the other hand, is a dame grand cross of the Royal Victorian Order, but she only got it in 2010, i.e. when she had already been married to Edward for about 11 years or so (she had been already made a member of the Queen's family order in 2004 though).

Again, the bottom line is that QEII doesn't give out orders lightly as other monarchs do.

I agree, but that still won't stop the debate about when she will be given it, why she hasn't already been given it and how unfair it is.

They can make it without.

The Queen has simply decided that Catherine should not have it. End of really.

I may be wrong but it looks like Prince Harry has on two stars tonight. Any suggestions?

I watched the coverage and possession and when I got a glimpse of Catherine without her family order, all I could do was shake my head. I'm trying to not think about the unfairness and ridiculousness of it all.

Its about ivory, IMO. William wants a complete ban so that makes the position difficult.

The Queen has indicated her support of Catherine by letting her use jewellery that is of real personal significance. I think that is important.

I dont expect everyone to agree but thats my view

And not the first time either (bringing to mind the lovely bracelet she's worn a couple times, wasn't that a wedding gift for the Queen also?)....IIRC.

I agree with this view.

If anyone there had worn an order adorned with an ivory miniature, it would have become the story. William has been championing the ivory ban all over the world as well as at home.

And I also think that HM is very happy with Catherine and is pleased to be able to lend her some "big guns" from the vaults.

I've asked the same question above. I've also posted about it in the State Visit thread.

The Collar of the Golden Fleece and the Sash of the Order of the Garter. Perfect.
Did his Father received the Garter also ?
