And this is the crux of the matter, isn't it. Any benefit Harry got from his time with our soldiers would be a benefit to him personally, not the British army. So, totally pointless as a military exchange.

To be honest, I don't know if I actually read this or I'm imagining I read it somewhere about Harry's trip to Australia was spending some time with the Australian military and their work with their wounded service personnel.

In this regard, if true, I think would not only benefit Harry personally but also give him an awareness first hand of what the programs are like in Australia and use that knowledge in his future work with the wounded. I seem to recall that he will still be very active in this regards but as a civilian.

I have read that $76 000 of the $115,000 was a precaution by Australian authorities, the cost of a plane to standby in case of a medical emergency.

He's in Norfolk today, seeing Charlotte for the first time, then the brothers are playing polo for their charities down in Gloucestershire.

Whoopie! Other honours will come in time, but this is her signal that she approves of his military past and future plans. IMHO.

Making him a Knight Commander rather than Grand Cross allows the Queen to promote him at a future date for continuing service.

The RVO ranks behind the Order of the Garter, the Order of the Thistle, the Order of the Bath, The Order of Merit and the Order of St Michael and St George.

Congrats to Prince Harry. Some thought only Charles would be the one that would bestow an honor on Prince Harry, but I knew The Queen would honor Harry sooner.

Its a very nice honour for Harry. As he probably won't receive the Garter until his father's reign this is nice. He must be proud.

No sash (riband) though. That comes only with the highest grade. Knight Grand Cross Victorian Order (GCVO)

This is wonderful news and I'm glad that Harry has been recognized by his grandmother for the things he does.

Interestingly the only adult royals who don't have the RVO are:


Charles, William, Kate, Beatrice, Eugenie and Marie-Christine.


Although in the past the future Kings were given this award in the reigns of parents or grandparents (George V received it from Queen Victoria as did his father) and Edward VIII was given it by his father. He in turn gave it to his mother.


George VI was also given it by his father but he was only the second son so no surprises there. Queen Elizabeth was not given the RVO but because the Sovereign of the Order when she ascended the throne. It seems that she intends for Charles to have the same experience - to only be RVO as Sovereign.


William is, as well as a KG and KT, an ADC to the Queen.
