Dame Grand Cross of the Victorian Order (GCVO)

The Royal Victorian Order is given by The Queen to people who have served her or the Monarchy in a personal capacity.  The Order was, and is, entirely within the Sovereign's personal gift.
These may include members of the Royal Family, officials of the Royal Household, and sometimes British Ambassadors who have helped organise a State Visit to a particular country.

The Order was founded in April 1896 by Queen Victoria as a way of rewarding personal service to her, on her own initiative rather than by ministerial recommendation.
