The royal couple’s official social media accounts posted a statement in response to their new roles that read, “An honor to serve our new military affiliations across the @royalnavy @britisharmy and @royalairforceuk.”

Thrilled royal supporters immediately took to the comments section to offer their congratulations to the couple. One person wrote, “Amazing congratulations both the prince and princess of Wales,” and included a red heart emoji.

Awesome news and video, absolutely awesome! So richly deserved! You two will undoubtedly perform superbly as usual. Big congrats,” a second chimed in. A third wrote, “I’m sure it’s an honor for the squadrons & regiments as well!” in the meantime.


Princess Anne also received a new honour


The other royals who received new roles were not just them. In addition to William and Catherine, King Charles, Princess Anne, Prince Edward, and Duchess Sophie also received new military honors, according to a statement from Buckingham Palace.

One was held by the late Prince Philip, one by the late King Charles, one by Prince William, two by Prince Andrew, and one position was never filled by a member of the royal family. Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II previously held eleven of those positions.

The new positions “will continue to reflect the close relationship between the Armed Forces and the Royal Family in His Majesty’s reign,” according to the palace.

The announcement comes after Queen Camilla was named the new Colonel-in-Chief of The Royal Lancers in June. This was a particularly emotional time for her as the late Major Bruce Shand, the late Queen’s father, served with the 12th Lancers during World War II.

The following announcements are made just a few weeks before the late Queen Elizabeth’s passing anniversary on September 8; the King and Queen are anticipated to observe this date privately.

The choice to do so is in line with that of the late Queen Elizabeth, who, when her father passed away around the time of her coronation in 1952, decided to observe his death anniversary in private.
