Another CBE: @MindCharity's CEO, Paul Farmer, for services to mental health. An honour William & Kate will, no doubt, be pleased to see.

Staff of royals' charities honoured with New Year gongs as William and Kate step up voluntary work


Quote:
Staff at charities backed by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have received a string of New Year honours.
The gongs were announced as sources say William and Kate plan to step up their work in 2016.

Juli Beattie, founder of The Art Room, which has Kate as royal patron, has received an OBE for services to education.

There was also an OBE for Pamela Baxter, deputy director of another of Kate’s patronages, the National Portrait Gallery.

Prince George’s godmother, Julia Samuel, has received an MBE for her work as Founder Patron and trustee of Child Bereavement UK, of which Prince William is royal patron.

Mrs Samuel was one of Princess Diana’s closest friends and has devoted her life to helping grieving families.

Paul Farmer, chief executive of the charity MIND, has also received a CBE for services to mental health.

Queen's Birthday Honours: Rod Stewart and Tim Peake head list - BBC News

Queen's Birthday Honours: Rod Stewart is knighted while Ant n' Dec get OBEs
Quote:
od Stewart thanked the Queen for the “monumental” honour of being knighted in the Queen’s 90th birthday honours list tonight as he became Sir Rod Stewart for services to music and charity.

Sir Rod was the headline act among the 1,149 people to receive an award in a list which also included OBEs for the TV presenters Ant and Dec and the actor Brian Blessed, and a Companion of Honour medal for Dame Vera Lynn at the age of 99.

Astronaut Tim Peake, meanwhile, became the first Briton honoured for work in space.

Sir Rod, 71, whose music career began in 1961, said: “I’ve led a wonderful life and have had a tremendous career thanks to the generous support of the great British public.

“This monumental honour has topped it off and I couldn’t ask for anything more.”

With a pun on one of his most famous songs, he added: “I thank Her Majesty and promise to ‘wear it well’.”

You'd think she wouldve given some members of her family an honour in this her 90th year.

Which particular achievements were you thinking of that are deserving of recognition?

Why?

She gives them lots of honours as it is so why give them anything more simply for being her family and that is the only reason they get honours - they don't actually have to do anything to earn them - unlike the other recipients.

To give any member of her family an honour would be to say to the other recipients "you had to work hard for your honours but others only had to be born into the right family".

Other than Anne and Zara due to their equestrian achievements, Philip, Andrew, Harry who saw active service in war zones and The Duke of Kent and Prince Michael in peace keeping forces in Cyprus along with other areas what have the others actually achieved that would warrant any honours????

Before I get attacked for not mentioning Charles and William's military service I would like to remind posters that they didn't serve in 'active war zones' or in 'peacekeeping' forces but were lucky enough to serve in peaceful areas - in the military yes but not under fire or the potential for being under fire as did the others mentioned.

If you look to the extended family you do find some more service. Duke of Gloucester's heir served in Iraq and Kosovo, and the Earl of St Andrews is a former diplomat. But I agree, honoring other members of the royal family simply to honor them on her birthday, would diminish the honor of those honored this year for a reason.

I think had he not been Royal, the Prince of Wales may well have been honoured for the work of the Prince's Trust. If its success continues, the Invictus Games is something that would result in a founder being honoured but in years to come, not yet. Of course it can be argued the success of each has a lot to do with their founder's Royal status.

The Duke of Edinburgh and Tim Lawrence were both Mentioned in Dispatches. That seems to be unconnected to their status as was the CB Tim was awarded at the same time Zara was awarded her MBE as it is an honour in the gift of the government and not the Queen.

But otherwise I agree with Iluvbertie.
