The Queen has made one of Camilla's aides, Amanda MacManus a Lieutenant of the Royal Victorian Order. (She can do this independently of gov)

Did Robert Hardy get a knighthood? I see Maggie Smith is getting something- yay!

I read tonight that Maggie Smith is going to be made a companion of honor.
Awesome! Just what is a companion of honor?
An award her Majesty gives out to her girlfriends? I jest.
Really disappointed Robert Hardy was not knighted. Guess I will have to write more letters.
It would be wonderful if he was made a KBE.
Could he also be made a companion of honor, or a knight of the Garter?
Which are the honors that her Majesty has control over, and which ones are the ones that the government awards?
Frankly, I am shocked that her Majesty hasn't given him a position in an honor she has control over.
They've met a few times, and she seems to like him.
Somebody better make up their mind soon. He's not going to live forever.

Here you go - http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Order...ions_of_Honour

Robert Hardy could be awarded any number of honour government backed or not. When the honours come out twice a year, I believe they are a joint "venture" between Queen and government.

Robert Hardy won't ever be made a knight of the garter, there's no need.

Whether The Queen likes him or not makes no difference, all awards are dependent upon servitude of some kind to some service.

Has anyone considered the possibility that he has been offered a knighthood and turned it down? The recipients are notified some time in advance and are able to say 'no thanks'.

Thank you for the information. Wouldn't it be and if Maggie Smith showed up to collect her honor in her Lady Grantham costume, hat and all? I think Prince William should be the one to give it to her.
He and Kate are supposedly big Downton Abbey fans. They have good taste.
