Kate Middleton and Queen Elizabeth have been boarded with rumors surrounding their controversial relationship. More so after rumors of the Queen awarding the Duchess of Cambridge the Tuvalu Order of Merit started circulating online

Kate Middleton and Queen Elizabeth has remained amicable in public but rumors have been constant to hint that a turbulent relationship lies beneath. While the rumors have no concrete of such allegations, Celeb Dirty Laundry hinted there could be one now. The Queen is now rumored to give the Duchess of Cambridge an honor after so long. Middleton hasn't received a single order of merit until now. Reports confirm that the Queen is going to award the Duchess' first honor: The Tuvalu Order of Merit. While this could be viewed as an accomplishment by some, avid followers are saying that it's more of an insult that an honor.

The Tuvalu Order of Merit is considered as a minute honor in Australia. This goes to prove that the honor is more of a slap in the face than an actual award. While Australia is considered as a major part of the Commonwealth, it remains a fact that Kate Middleton wasn't offered a royal family order or a more distinguished Victorian order. The Queen's move to award her the small order is considered as an admission to the speculation of some: she doesn't like Middleton. Reports claim that Middleton isn't deserving of a medal or special honor because she hasn't done anything since she married Prince William.

Kate Middleton and Prince William are said to have avoided their royal duties, constantly preferring vacation or rest as spotted more recently by Irish Independent. More so, the royal couple has been in the spotlight for all the wrong reasons. It should be noted however that all of these are mere speculations and Queen Elizabeth could very well be giving the Duchess a real honor.
