My gut feelings tell me that its in recognition of directing and getting things to move smoothly in many of the different pageants held over the past year for the 90th birthday celebrations. First up would be the coordination of the magnificent Royal Windsor Horse Show. That was beautifully put together.

I would guess she is not a British/commonwealth citizen. Their awards are usually honorary (Bob Geldof, Bono, Bill Gates etc).

According to Rebecca English, she is being honoured for long years of service as a royal dress maker to the queen. Thought Angela is the well known one, she is said to have a team of four. Teresa seems to be one of them. Goes along with other personal staff like her hairdresser being honoured this year.

Otherwise there seems to have been quite a good balance this year IMO, a few more sportspeople than normal perhaps but it is the first time to acknowledge the 2016 Olympics.
In this list: NEW YEAR HONOURS 2017
DIPLOMATIC SERVICE AND OVERSEAS LIST

And there goes the knighthood for Beckham forever ... I always thought he is a bit dim but I didn't know to what extent.
He was a failure in England football, period, and should not compare himself with Olympic Gold Medal winners who were knighted.

In total, 74 per cent of awards in the Birthday Honours List will go to people who have undertaken outstanding work in or for their local community​, following the Prime Minister’s strategic steer that she would like more honours to go to people really contributing to society and their communities.

Will Queen Elizabeth II likely bestow the Order of the Thistle on Andrew or Edward? It seems she only reserved it for Princes Charles & William, and Princess Anne. Her royal cousins the Gloucester's and Kents don't have it either. Queen Victoria and King George V it seems were the last two monarch's who exclusively bestowed the Order on all of their sons, instead of a select few princes.

I think that The Queen bestows honours on those deserving of them and for specific effort.

Charles, Anne and William have all had a lot to do with Scotland and continue to work tirelessly for Scottish charities, organizations and causes.

I cannot say with any degree of certainty, but I do think that many (if any) of the other Windsor's do as much as they do for that part of the kingdom.

With respect to Charles and William, HM may have honoured them with The Thistle as a function of her succession but I think that the connection to Scotland also comes in to play when HM make her choices.

Anne and Charles certainly do a lot for Scottish charities and organisations and Charles spends an awful lot of time up in Scotland. However, William spends very little time there, maybe a scattering of weekends at Birkhall for shooting during the year and a few days with Kate and the children in the late summer when the Queen and other members of the family are holidaying at Balmoral.

As far as I know William doesn't have huge specific interest in Scottish concerns and charities, and I think he has the Thistle because he is heir to the heir more than anything else.

By contrast, all the Queen's children have served as Lords High Commissioner to the Assembly of the Church of Scotland for a year, in Anne's case twice. IMHO I think Anne should definitely have received it. See Dman's post below!

HRH The Princess Royal received The Order of the Thistle back in 2000.

Curryong, you're welcome. I'm looking forward to other senior royals receiving some honors, but that's for another thread.

Agreed, the only real connection between William and Scotland besides a rare trip to Balmoral is having gone to college there. On the other hand, most of the senior royals have at least a handful of charities in Scotland they are actively involved in. Andrew has a number, not surprisingly golf related, but not all of them.

It seems more that he is the future king, then any personal connection William has with Scotland.
