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.

According to AFP, Prince Harry 27,  landed in Belize on Friday on the first stop of a tour of the Caribbean and Central America to mark his grandmother Queen Elizabeth II’s Diamond Jubilee, a palace official said.

Harry landed at Philip S.W. Goldson International Airport near Belize City at around 4:30 pm (2230 GMT), a spokeswoman for the prince’s Clarence House residence told AFP.

Making his first solo tour, the third in line to the British throne will also visit the Bahamas and Jamaica on the seven-day trip before travelling to Brazil on March 9 on behalf of the British government.

“The Prince is hugely looking forward to representing the Queen and he will bring his own brand of enthusiasm and energy to every event,” said Harry’s private secretary Jamie Lowther-Pinkerton.

He added that the tour of the three countries, which all have the queen as head of state, reflected “Harry’s wish to pay personal tribute to his grandmother the queen, but also to spend time wherever possible with young people in all three countries”.

The prince’s tour is one of several being made by British royals in 2012 as part of celebrations marking sixty years of Elizabeth II’s reign..

In Belize, Harry will meet the governor-general and attend a street party, while in Jamaica he hopes to race against the world’s fastest man Usain Bolt when he visits the sprinter’s training track in Kingston.

He will also meet Jamaican Prime Minister Portia Simpson Minister, who wants the Caribbean nation to drop the queen as head of state.
