Ribbon of the Order
The Royal Family Order of George VI is an honour that was bestowed on female members of the British royal family by King George VI.
Princess Alexandra is the only surviving recipient, having been appointed in 1951.
The insignia, an enamel portrait of the king surrounded by diamonds, is worn on a bow of rose pink ribbon.
It was provided in two different sizes: the largest version was bestowed on the King's wife and mother, and size two to the other recipients. The first examples were presented two days before the 1937 Coronation, at a family luncheon.
