Does Lady Sarah Chatto have the RFO,something I have often wondered being the queen's only niece?

I guess the only answer is we don't really know, as we saw with Catherine, we only know any of the royal ladies has a RFO when they are seen wearing it. Catherine got hers last year but we didn't see it as the Diplomatic reception only at the Dutch state visit more recently. It may well be Lady Sarah has it but we've never see her in it just as the Queen may have presented a RFO to other members of her family but we haven't seen them in it.

My gut instinct is that only Royal Highnesses have received the RFO since at least George V's day.

“The Queen has been pleased to make the following appointment to the Royal Victorian Order:-

The announcement comes of the 8th Anniversary of Catherine's marriage.

There is a service for the order this Friday 3rd May, where we should expect to see Catherine.

Congratulations, to Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge! I knew that Order was coming. It’s about time.

Very well deserved and certainly not automatic. Diana never received it and Camilla received hers at 7 years and now Catherine after only 8 years.

This is the highest grade, GCVO, one above Harry.

As it should be!

Do we think Camilla will soon get the Garter, or will she have to wait for Charles to appoint her?

Good for Kate. After she received the RFO I expected this was coming as well.

It's been traditional for the monarch to award the Garter to their consort since Edward VII gave it to Queen Alexandra. The one exception was Prince Philip: he got it from King George VI before his wedding but one day after the king gave it to Princess Elizabeth, so that she would remain senior to him.

So tradition holds that once Charles is king, he'll give it to Camilla.

I think it would be fitting for The Queen to award it to her, despite tradition (thank you Thena for the reminder of protocol). It would be another (& strong) signal of HM's approval for Camilla's future as Queen consort, which is still not a popular notion in the UK (according to all surveys).

Kensington Palace has not officially commented on the Duchess's GCVO but a source tells me: ‘Her Royal Highness is honoured and looks forward to continuing her work in support of the Queen.’

Via Rebecca English Twitter

This is huge. It is symbolic of The Queen’s profound admiration, encouragement and affirmation of The Duchess of Cambridge and all she has achieved since marrying into the Royal Family

That's lovely! I was wondering when this would come Catherine's way, and the timing is impeccable.

What a nice suprise. So deserved as Catherine clearly upgraded her game lately.
Work and impeccable behaviour are always the key to recognition.
Well done M'am.

Perhaps she doesn't want to give the Garter to Camilla so Charles himself can give it to his wife.

The Queen appointed The Duchess of Cambridge to be a Dame Grand Cross of the Royal Victorian Order, an order of chivalry established in 1896 by Queen Victoria to recognise personal service to the monarch. This example of a Small Star from the Order’s insignia was King George V’s

I think the service for the Order is on May 3rd. I wish we could see Catherine, The Queen, and the other Dame Grand Crosses in their mantles.

After ONLY eight years? I feel that Queen Elizabeth II is far too mean with these family orders. What is the Queen trying to prove? Also, is this Order linked to Princess Diana's jewellery not really being seen in public?
