DCVO would be Dame Commander, which is a lower grade equivalent to the one Harry holds (KCVO). Unlike GCVOs, neither KCVOs nor DCVOs wear sashes.

I don’t see any evidence that antipathy towards Meghan in royal circles has anything to do with “ race”. As hard as it may be for Americans to accept that, the truth is “ race” is not as central to...

It iis probably nothing more than rumor, but, again, rumor spreads only when it matches people’s perceptions of what they expect to be true. And, in that case, much of what Camilla Tominey is...

Incidentally, Andrew was also Charlesí best man, wasnít he ? I submit then that it means nothing in itself other than tradition.
