The Queen HASN’T honoured Meghan Markle with RAF appointment Kate Middleton and Camilla Parker Bowles hold


WHEN Meghan Markle married Prince Harry last year, The Queen went to great lengths to make the former Suits actress feel welcome in the Royal Family.

Last week, Fabulous Digital exclusively revealed that Her Majesty has made an “unusual effort” to forge a close relationship with the Duchess of Sussex.

However, it now appears that there is one way Meghan is lagging behind other senior women in the Royal Family – in that she still doesn’t have an honorary military appointment.

In comparison to Kate Middleton, Camilla Parker Bowles, and Princess Anne who each been granted an RAF honour, Meghan has yet to receive a military title.

In 2015, Meghan’s sister-in-law Kate was made an Honorary Air Commandant of the RAF Air Cadets by Prince Philip.

This position perfectly ties in with her work with young people as the RAF’S Air Cadets scheme trains children from the age of 12 how to fly as well as teaching them leadership and outdoor skills.

The Duchess of Cornwall holds a number of honorary military appointments.

Most notably, Camilla is a patron of the Desert Rats Association as a tribute to her late father who was an officer in the British Army.

Princess Anne also holds an impressive 27 military appointments and, as a result, rides alongside her brothers Prince Charles and Andrew at the Trooping the Colour as the Colonel-in-Chief of the Blues and Royals.

What’s more, Princess Diana was also granted a number of military honours and was a patron of the Princess of Wales’ Regiment.

The Queen also did her bit for her country during World War Two by serving in the Women’s Auxiliary Territorial Service and earning her military accolade that way.

The reason Meghan has yet to earn a military appointment could be because she is currently on maternity leave, having welcomed baby Archie in May.

However, Meghan’s interests mainly revolve around environmentalism, women’s rights and social issues – as highlighted by her royal patronages Smart Works, the National Theatre, the Association of Commonwealth Universities, and animal charity Mayhew.

Alternatively, the Duchess of Sussex does not currently have a British citizenship which could be another reason which she has yet to gain a honorary position in the British Armed Forces.
