Ribbon of the Order
The Royal Family Order of George V was an honour that was bestowed on female members of the British royal family by King George V.
Queen Elizabeth II was the last surviving recipient when she died on 8 September 2022.
The order consists of a miniature of the king in naval uniform set in a crowned oval diamond frame and suspended from a pale blue ribbon. It was provided in four different sizes: the largest version was bestowed on the King's wife and mother, the next largest went to his daughter and daughters-in-law, his sisters and his aunts; a smaller version was given to his granddaughters and the smallest to a number of other female relations.
