Kate Middleton gets a new title from the Queen and it's very impressive.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince William and Kate Middleton, celebrated their eighth anniversary yesterday and a rather special announcement was shared on the same day.
Queen Elizabeth bestowed Kate with Dame Grand Cross of the Royal Victoria Order (GCVO) for her work over the years as a member of the royal family.
A statement issued on the Royal Family's official website read:
"The Queen has been pleased to make the following appointment to the Royal Victorian Order. To be a Dame Grand Cross of the Royal Victorian Order (GCVO) - HRH The Duchess of Cambridge".
Kate Middleton is a patron of a number of charities including Action for Children, East Anglia's Children's Hospices, National Portrait Gallery, National History Museum and the Nursing Now campaign among others.

The Queen also gifted Camilla Parker-Bowles with the same title in 2012, on the day of her and Charles' seventh wedding anniversary so it appears to be something of a tradition.
As fans of Kate Middleton and Prince William will know, the couple were married in Westminister Abbey on 29 April 2011 and the ceremony was televised, with people all over the world tuning in to see the big moment.
