If you have received and order of the other country that comes with a sash, it's what you wear (hence QEII in an orange one and WAX in an blue one, there's a medaillon hanging from it, could be St George the and the dragon but I cannot recall which that belongs to, i.e. if he's already wearing the Garter sash). If you haven't received any, you'll wear the highest order of your own country (hence Max's blue and orange one).


IIRC the Order of the Garter comes with, well, a garter and a enamel/diamond star, you can see Philip, Charles and Chompers wearing the most formal attire (with a knickerbocker and black silk sock, quite jolly) with the garter at earlier state banquets. But maybe that blue sash is the Garter one.

The Royal Family order has a small yellow bow with a portrait of the current monarch. If you were alive during other reigns, you'd wear the orders of the other monarchs too (hence QEII's two bows, for her father and her grandfather). I don't think foreigners can receive the RFO unless they are married into the family.

Sophie was made Dame Grand Cross in the Royal Victorian order in 2010, the blue sash. She received the yellow bow in 2004.

Soph has been working for the firm long and hard and has also received some foreign orders. Katen has done, well, let's just say not so much, yet, and has yet to collect her badges. It's a bit like the girl scouts, isn't it?

That's because Kate only has the Royal Family Order of Queen Elizabeth II.

Sophie has the Royal Family Order of Queen Elizabeth II and the Royal Victorian Order(the sash)

These two are just too cute.

What is evident is how well the two couples get on. Max and Sophie were seen laughing a lot.

I love Max for many reasons, and one of them is that she has a normal body for her height (AHEMKATEAHEM) and works with it. She seems to have a healthy attitude all the way around, and rocks it. Who else could pull off neon pink but Max? Being queen of any country is not the easiest job, but she makes it look like fun because of her attitude.

I'll buy off on the suggested reasons above as to why E&S are accompanying W&M - now, would it be more appropriate for the Cambs to do it in terms of rank? Yes. The same holds for C&C. But looking at the four of them today, and their obvious comfort level with one another, Kate can stick with her leaf of lettuce, and William can do whatever he does when the cameras aren't around. THIS is good PR.

I see the Wessex duo and think they are the ones who should be styled duke and duchess. Ahem.
