Kate Middleton has been made a Dame Grand Cross of the Royal Victorian Order, which is the highest rank equivalent of a Knight.
The Duchess of Cambridge was given this special honour yesterday, on her and Prince William’s eighth wedding anniversary.
Her Majesty made a similar gesture to Camilla in 2012, when it was her and Prince Charles’ seventh wedding anniversary.
It is believed Kate and the Queen share a very close bond with one another and the award is to highlight the Duchess’ important work as a member of the Royal Family.
“Congratulations Duchess of Cambridge”
The mum-of-three will join the Duchess of Cornwall, Princess Anne, the Countess of Wessex and the Duchess of Gloucester who also have the title.
In 2017, the Duke of Edinburgh, Prince Philip, was appointed the order, while Harry was named a Knight Commander of the order in 2015.
According to Majesty Magazine, the service for the order will be held this week on May 3 at Windsor Castle.
Kate will now have the letters GCVO after her name.

A third added: “Congratulations to the Duchess of Cambridge for such an honour. Well deserved!”
While a fourth gushed: “Aw what a lovely anniversary gift! Congratulations to HRH The Duchess of Cambridge, a much deserved honour.”
And a Twitter user commented: “Congratulations to HRH The Duchess. A classy lady who knows her role.”
