The Duchess of Cambridge made a cheery appearance at the Buckingham Palace garden party on Tuesday afternoon, and it seems she had extra reason to smile. The Queen had just invested Kate with the Insignia of a Dame Grand Cross of the Royal Victorian Order, an honour that she was officially given nearly a month ago. But it wasn't until this week that the private ceremony took place and Kate was presented with the regalia in person.
