Diana did receive The Queen's personal order but never received any other from her such as the RVO which Camilla now has. I would suggest that is because The Queen was fully aware that to all intents and purposes Diana and Charles had separated by the 7 year mark - which is when she gave the award to Camilla.

The order Diana was awarded in Britain was the one of the Queen's picture on the yellow ribbon - not the one with the blue sash - that is the Royal Victorian Order. Camilla has both of these honours while Diana only ever had the first one.

I do think it was very unfair that Diana worked very hard as The Princess of Wales for sixteen years and only had one Royal Order from The Queen. She received the Royal Family Order of Queen Elizabeth II in 1982.

The Duchess of Cambridge hasn't attended an event where the Royal Family Order of Queen Elizabeth II would be worn, so we don't know if she have the Order yet. Since there's no announcement that she has received the Order, we just have to wait and see her turn up at an event with it on. I'm thinking she may have it though.

While Diana was The Princess of Wales for 16 years, I don't think she was necessarily a part of the family for a good portion of that.

She was married in 1981, and by 1985 the two were having serious problems. In 1992 Diana's authorizes biography was published. That's at most 11 years of being a member of the family before she essentially separated herself from them, even if a divorce wasn't yet imminent. At the end of the year, the two were advised to separate, if not outright divorce.

Charles has also said that by 1986 he considered his marriage to be irrevocably broken down. As such, it seems like there was no reason to bestow honours on Diana. The Queen's waited a bit with each of her other daughters-in-law, and so it stands to reason that she waited with Diana then decided not to once it was clear that Diana wasn't really a part of the family.

Well, I can't see that as a good excuse. Diana worked very hard as HRH The Princess of Wales for sixteen years. She represented Her Majesty The Queen, the Untied Kingdom and Commonwealth countless times and devoted herself to her charity work. She put up with a lot in her marriage but she at least tried to carry on her duty with grace and dignity. I think after all those years of hard work as a senior member of the royal family and future Queen, Diana should've been made Dame Grand Cross of the Royal Victorian Order or something. Her Royal Order was well deserved, IMO.

Well obviously HM disagreed with your views on Dianas contributions or she would have awarded her the GCVO.

Yeah I know. I just think Diana had deserved to be recognized for her major contribution to the work of Monarchy through the early 80's and the 90's. She really did work hard and was a pretty good Princess of Wales. I think despite everything, she should've got her pat on the back just like Camilla and Sophie. IMO, The Queen missed the opportunity to really give Diana the recognition she deserved.

I don't know, I still feel like Diana had got some unfair treatment, IMO.
I think Diana deserved some proper honors from The Queen and just never got it.

The GCVO is given for highest personal service to the monarch, rather than highest personal disservice.. And the perception of working "very hard" (compared to other royals) is a completely subjective

It's always the same debate : the public figure of Diana vs the Private one. The GCVO acknowledges the position of the individual inside the royal family. If indeed the late Princess of Wales had some great and real qualities during her public engagements, we can suspect that it was not necessarily the same inside her own family. We can argue that her somewhat oversensitive personnality was maybe not quite to HM's taste (the moto "never explain never complain" was never Diana's favourite).Sophie and Camilla down to earth style and discreet approach of the royal life is maybe the key of HM's favour.

We can ad that two others extrovert, much-publicized and sometimes controversial figures of the RF received nothing from HM : Sarah Duchess of York and Princess Michael of Kent.

If Diana had lived who know she may have got one. But at her death she hadn't really been part of the Royal Family for 6 or 7 Years And also her and Charles had been separated for four years and eventual divorce. As someone said adobe The Queen is strict on RFO.

Well, The Queen has taken a new approach toward the treatment of her current daughters-in-law so her now handing out these Orders can't be a total surprise.

Just to point out, Diana did receive the Grand Cross of the Order of the Crown of the Netherlands by Queen Beatrix. Also she had The Supreme Class of the Order of the Virtues (Order of Al-Kamal).

I just hope Catherine won't have to wait 10 to 15 years for her honours.

I can't find a picture of Diana with the Order but it's listed on Wiki that she received the Order in 1981 and The Queen also received the Supreme Class Order of the Virtues in 1948.

The first time she was seen wearing the order was during the State Visit by Queen Beatrix after William's birth in 1982.
