Kate And Queen Tea Party
Published: May 30, 2012
Kate And Queen Tea Party, Clearly, if there’s one thing HRH Prince William, the Duke of Cambridge, RAF Flight Lieutenant, Earl of Strathearn and Royal Knight Companion of the Most Noble Order of the Garter is lacking, its lofty and pinky-raising titles. Ahem.
Well, spare a tear (and maybe some ink) today for the royal stationer, because Queen Elizabeth II just gifted her eldest grandson with another sobriquet for the record books.
Round tables at the ready, everyone…
Buckingham Palace has announced that Prince William is now a Royal Knight of the Order of the Thistle, an honor bestowed upon him by his grandmother, who, unlike is the case for other such titles of peerage which require consultation with the government, is the sole decider for the appointments.
A rep for the royal said William was “very honored.”
“It’s his 30th birthday this year and also the Diamond Jubilee and the Queen felt it was an appropriate time to bestow the honor.”
The Order of the Thistle, incidentally, is Scotland’s order of chivalry, and is second in precedence and seniority only to England’s Order of the Garter, of which William is already a knight.
And for those keeping track at home, Prince Harry is so far a member of neither, though time may very well change that: typically, only the most senior members of the royal family are made knights and ladies. (E! Online)
