(CNN)Ri Sol Ju, wife of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, has been afforded a new title in the country's state media, a move that analysts say could signal an evolution in the power structure of the reclusive country.

Referred to in a KCNA report as the "respected First Lady," paired with an honorific reserved for respected members of society, the title is a step up from the usual "comrade" that she had previously been afforded.

North Korea watcher Peter Ward, a writer for NK News, a blog which follows North Korean political developments, posted on Twitter that the change in title was a sign that Ri "is getting her own personality cult."
