According to Sky News,  Duchess of Cornwall Camilla Parker Bowles has been made a a Dame Grand Cross – the highest female rank in the Royal Victorian Order.

The announcement comes on the day of the seventh wedding anniversary of Camilla and the Prince of Wales.

The pair married on April 9, 2005 in a civil ceremony at the Guildhall in Windsor after spending a number of years as a couple.

Awards under the Royal Victorian Order are in the Queen’s personal gift and are given to people who have served her or the monarchy in a special way. They are bestowed independently of 10 Downing Street.

The Order was founded in April 1896 by Queen Victoria as a way of rewarding personal service to her.

It is likely the award recognises 64-year-old Camilla’s hard work as a member of the Royal Family.

In the past seven years she has carried out hundreds of engagements and taken on a wide range of patronages.

She has also travelled extensively overseas with Prince Charles on official visits.

A Buckingham Palace spokeswoman said the Duchess will be invested with the insignia of her rank at a later date.
