As opposed to KCCO? I had to look up KCVO but I gather it's a dynastic order of knighthood? Is it for those in the family or is it award to commoners by merit as well? Just curious.
No merit at all - a personal gift in the hands of the Queen for services to the monarch. Generally staff, courtiers, diplomats and the like.
