This special crown of respect and dignity has been given eight years after the death of Princess Diana to Camilla and she will now be having the GCVO letters after her name and has also joined the royal people like Princess Anne, the Duchess of Gloucester. Though, royal observers says that the award was expect to be given to Camilla but sources closed to the family says this is the prize of her hard work and altruistic attitude towards the service of the royal family.
