Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip Attend A Service For OBE
The Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh attended a service today at St. Paul’s Cathedral in honor of the 100th anniversary of the Order of the British Empire.

Today, it’s rewarded to people for contributions to arts, science, charity and public service. Over 2,000 individuals have received the Order of the British Empire awards, from Knights and Dames to those who have received a CBE, OBE or MBE.
