The Royal Family Order is an order awarded by the sovereign of the United Kingdom to female members of the royal family (and occasionally to senior female members of the royal household). The order is a personal memento rather than a state decoration. The same practice is in place in the royal families of Norway, Sweden, Denmark, and Tonga.
