Kate is granted the Queen's highest seal of approval as she's made a Dame Grand Cross of the Royal Victorian Order on
her eighth wedding anniversary

Kate, 37, has been bestowed the honour which is personally made by the Queen. It's likely to be in recognition of the Duchess's work as member of the monarchy. The announcement comes on her eighth wedding anniversary to Prince William A Dame Grand Cross is highest rank in the Order and the equivalent of a KnightQueen gifted Camilla the same wedding anniversary honour back in 2012

Buckingham Palace made the announcement on Kate's eighth wedding anniversary to Prince William, 36 - and just days before Meghan is due to give birth to her first baby with the Duke of Sussex, 34.

Awards under the Royal Victorian Order are made personally by the Queen, for services to the sovereign.

It's likely that the Queen bestowed the prestigious honour on her granddaughter-in-law, 37, in recognition of her work as a member of the monarchy - which will come as a massive boost for Kate amid rumours of recent strains on her marriage.

She has supported her own causes such as the early years development of children, travelled the Commonwealth on behalf of the monarch and helped to raise awareness about mental health alongside her husband and Prince Harry.

But just hours after the honour was announced, the so-called rivalry between the Duchess of Cambridge and the Duchess of Sussex has once again been thrown into the spotlight.
