Kate Middleton had one unforgettable wedding anniversary.
Queen Elizabeth II named her granddaughter-in-law as a Dame Grand Cross of the Royal Victorian Order, which is considered the highest possible rank for a British royal, People magazine reported Monday.
The honor came on the eighth wedding anniversary of Middleton and her husband Prince William and just weeks after the two women stepped out for their first-ever joint outing to visit King’s College’s Strand campus in London.
According to the magazine, the Royal Victorian Order was created by Queen Victoria in 1896 to allow her to recognize people who helped her or represented her. The ruling monarch personally selects who is given the honor.
