Kate and William looked fantastic at the state banquet tonight. Kate was wearing the papyrus tiara; however, she was not wearing the Family Order. Unfortunate. I would think by now, producing and heir and a "spare," that she would have been awarded that honor.

I didn't know the menus at British state banquets are printed in French!

Их грустный, опущённый вид,
Как речь безмолвная могилы,
Горячку сердца холодит.

Well French is still considered the language of international diplomacy!

I think today the situation is rather that French is the formal language of international diplomacy, or rather one of several. (The official languages of the United Nations are Arabic, Chinese, English, French, Russian and Spanish.)  QEII can converse with anybody in French (although in a very peculiar accent), but neither can her family nor her Chinese guests.

I ran across this article that said Kate had received the Family Order.  I can't imagine her not wearing it if it was indeed presented to her.   Can anyone confirm?

If HM had bestowed her that honor, she would have worn it at the banquet last night.

Despite rumours that she received it at Balmoral during the Queen's regnal jubilee, she is apparantly not yet a портретная дама.

I'm rather surprised she hasn't been awarded it yet. 

Love the Lotus Tiara on her, though.

It has been reported that Kate has worn the Cambridge Lover's Knott Tiara to the Queen's annual Diplomatic Reception. This is very exciting news for those of us who have been waiting to see that lovely tiara once again. Marvelous!
