The Queen is known to have made clear that she sees Kate as the “future Queen” with her special Royal honours. Journalist Victoria Murphy claimed that the Queen made it apparent that she sees Kate as the “Queen in waiting” with the level of recognition she rewarded her with. Kate was seen wearing a yellow ribbon on the lapel of her dress which is a special honour given by the Queen. 

As told in the documentary, Kate: Our Queen in waiting, Katie Nicholl, an author of Kate: The Future Queen said: “The Order itself is a yellow batch that is worn on the lapel of a dress. I think it was the Queen’s way really of thanking Kate for her contribution to the Royal Family.”

Bidisha, a broadcaster said: “The Queen is saying to Kate ‘I am going to give you these family honours to make it extremely clear that, I am a Queen, I look at you. I see a future Queen’.”

Victoria Murphy, a journalist and a Royal commentator said: “Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall received the Order previously, and now you have Kate also the Queen in waiting so now has been given that level of recognition.” 

The Royal Family Order is an honour given by the head of state at their discretion to only female members of their family as a reward for their contribution to the Monarch.

Kate has received this honour in 2017 with a yellow ribbon. 

Richard Fitzwilliams said: “Catherine already has the Royal Family Order and is a Dame Grand Cross of the Royal Victorian Order. 

“The Queen has complete confidence in her.”

Ms Nicholl said: “There are two roles to a future Queen.

“One is to produce heirs, which she has done and one is to learn to one day become Queen.

“That is very much what we are seeing, we are seeing a Queen in waiting.

“We are seeing the Duchess take on more duties, more royal engagements, more of a public profile than ever before.

She is taking on patronages from the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh.”

“They realise the potential of Prince William and Kate as this young, glamourous, dynamic duo.

“A duo who actually have the ability to reshape and project the monarchy into the future.”

Prince William and Kate have taken more responsibility to support the Queen. The senior Royals have stepped up after the Queen health scare last year in October.

Ms Nicholl added: “Don’t be under the illusion that she’s a wallflower because she’s not.

“She’s very strong, she’s very confident and I think she has real clarity of vision, and I think William depends on that hugely, so she has brought a huge amount to William’s life.

“She has filled William’s life with love and happiness and security and I think she’s made him incredibly happy.”
