Royal Family Order

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.

Famous quotes containing the words order, royal and/or family:

    It’s not greed and ambition that makes wars—it’s goodness. Wars are always fought for the best of reasons, for liberation or manifest destiny, always against tyranny and always in the best interests of humanity. So far this war, we’ve managed to butcher some 10,000,000 people in the interest of humanity. The next war, it seems we’ll have to destroy all of man in order to preserve his damn dignity.
    Paddy Chayefsky (1923–1981)

    An Englishman, methinks,—not to speak of other European nations,—habitually regards himself merely as a constituent part of the English nation; he is a member of the royal regiment of Englishmen, and is proud of his company, as he has reason to be proud of it. But an American—one who has made tolerable use of his opportunities—cares, comparatively, little about such things, and is advantageously nearer to the primitive and the ultimate condition of man in these respects.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    They would probably help, in some trying time to come, to keep the jewel of liberty within the family of freedom.
    Abraham Lincoln (1809–1865)
