I’m not sure why, but I think this is really exciting for Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge. She may end up being the only one of her generation to receive the honor.

Unlike other examples of the family order, the Duchess of Cambridge’s is made of glass rather than ivory.

Hadn't realized that Catherine has had it for nearly a year as we rarely see full length photos from the Diplomatic Corps reception. Glad to see that a compromise was made by substituting glass for the traditional ivory.

Where's dman when you need?

This is the only shot that we could have seen the RFO in last year but we didn't, it's a real shame we didn't see it.

Its been reported that there has been global earth tremors sending things flying off their shelves and it seems the epicenter of the small quake is located in the Midwest. Oh wait.... this just in. Its being reported that the cause is one Dman jumping up and down repeatedly while jubilantly shouting "YES!!!"

As a passionate advocate for Kate and the RFO for such a long time, its a happy day for our Dman!

I also like that its being reported that Kate's RFO is made of glass rather than ivory like the rest of the family wears. This, in and of itself, is a huge statement that the royal family embraces and supports William's work around the globe to ban the ivory trade and the illegal poaching to attain it.

Nicely done!

I assume that they had to find a substitute for the ivory anyway, because the use of ivory is just no longer acceptable. So I don't think that it's only Williams personal involvement with conservation issues.

I'd love to see really good pics of Kate's RFO, but I might be asking too much? Sigh.

MY guess is that all of the new RFOs' will be made of glass or something other than ivory - maybe porcelain for example.

From the photos I have seen so far, it looks quite good.

Should Charles continue the tradition of a Royal Family Order into his reign, I wonder what color ribbon will be used?

I'm going to take a wild guess at this and submit green as my guess. Green for the earth and sustainability which definitely would show Charles' passions.

The RFO doesn’t get announced; we don’t know someone has it until they’re photographed wearing it.

Catherine looked so good in her family order. With the gown, jewels and setting; she looked like proper future Queen.
