I guess I’m the only one that see that’s something isn’t kosher here. It shouldn’t take 60 years for this child to receive her family order. I know that s a fact.

The girl is being put in the same category as Sarah, Duchess of York and Princess Michael of Kent when it comes to the family order. That’s simply not right.

I think everyone just needs to come to their own conclusions about it...it's not worth arguing about.

The Royal Family Order (RFO) and other Royal Orders and Decorations

Im not sure you understand how the honours system works. The Duke of Edinburgh has had the Royal Victorian Order for years. The Queen simply elevated him to the highest class within the order to mark their wedding anniversary. The other members of the Royal Family who have the Royal Victorian Order are of different ranks within the order.

The Royal Victorian Order is given as an award for services to the Crown. The RFO is not an award as such. It isnít about the personal relationship to the Queen or to denote seniority within the family. Itís recognition of two years service. Which Kate hasnít completed yet. Honestly, I donít quite get why this is such an issue or so controversial.

I would but she’s an old Windsor. Old Windsor’s can be tricky.

The Duke of Edinburgh was never a member of the Royal Victorian Order until now.

I would just like to be a fly on the wall to watch her reaction. A citizen from a country she is not a monarch of telling, c 66 years into her job, that she is not doing an elemrmt of her jobproperly.

My mistake, he was given the Royal Victorian Chain in 2007. But so what if heís only just been made a member? Do you think the Queen giving honours shows that she likes one member of the family more than others? Is that the issue?

At least Im an American that recognize that a senior member of the family should at least have the family order after seven years. 20 Years can easily pass and people will still be saying that Catherine hasnít been fully committed to royal service to receive the family order.

I can assure you people arenít saying that. In the same way her receiving the RFO wonít be the topic of dinner table conversation throughout the country when and if she does get it.

Not doubting your commitment the cause of Catherine's RFO.

That CANNOT be the case, since the DoCamb has WIDE access to the Vault, yet the Countess of Wessex, who has a real bond with HMQ, has had only measly access...

The Royal Family Order (RFO) and other Royal Orders and Decorations

Exactly my thoughts wyevale. I donít know why the RFO has become invested with so much sentiment as if it means the Queen approves of someone as an individual. And if they donít have it, she clearly doesnít approve. I just donít see how that works when itís so clear how HM decides who does and who doesnít get it.

Receiving the GCVO was extra special for Philip. On their 70th wedding anniversary, 20 November 2017, the Queen appointed him Knight Grand Cross (GCVO) of the Royal Victorian Order, making him the first person since his late uncle, the first Earl Mountbatten of Burma, to be entitled to wear the breast stars of four orders of chivalry in the United Kingdom. No one else living can say they wear four breast stars of four different chivalry orders of the UK. I can see how HM made this personal milestone an extra special one. She has her head on right in my book.

Then again, Philip himself is a god and not many of the BRF can say that. The inhabitants of some villages on the island of Tanna, Vanuatu also worship Prince Philip as a god; the islanders possess portraits of the Duke and hold feasts on his birthday.

Why isnít Kate a God in Vanuatu?! Sheís a senior member of the Royal Family. The Queen must hate her.

I just think it’s a downright shame that Catherine is attending State Visits and the Diplomatic Corps Reception without at least the family order after all this time.

If she was just sitting at home eating bon bons and not doing anything in service of The Queen and Country for seven years, I would say that girl don’t deserve jack.

That’s not the case here.

Well.... I suppose what you could do is whip up a specially made Order of Dman for her to wear. At least she'd know someone appreciates her across the pond. Just don't make it out of ivory.

But seriously, I don't think Kate is losing any sleep at all over this. There's more important things on her mind like making sure the pictures of George in his sheep costume came out good.

This discussion is really going round and round and round like a malfunctioning CD-Player :-D

I don't think Kate has any issues to sleep during the nights because of this question, as some people here seems to have :-D

We are used to this here. Happens pretty much every time a state banquet or gala happens, thanks to Dman's tireless crusade in championing for an RFO for the Duchess of Cambridge..

Eventually it will pay off too. Can't fault a man for sticking to his convictions and standing up for what he believes in. Those are honorable traits in my book.

It would be nice to see the old and grey Dowager Queen Catherine walking to a State Banquet with the RFO's of Elizabeth II, Charles III, William V and George VII !
