The Royal Family Order of King Edward VII was an honour bestowed as a mark of personal esteem on female members of the British Royal Family by King Edward VII. The order is a personal memento rather than a state decoration.

Appearance

The ribbon of Edward VII's Royal Family Order was (working outwards in) a red stripe, almost half the size of the centre stripe, a thin gold stripe, about one-fifth of the red stripe, and a blue stripe, almost double the red stripe.

The red gold pattern is mirrored on both sides.
