I wonder whether he will ever get an actual ceremony. All investitures have been cancelled for the rest of 2020 I believe and as Tom is in the same age bracket as the Queen and Charles he has to stay in his own home. Maybe William could go to him but otherwise he will have to wait until next year possibly.

It is a great honour for an inspirational man at a time when the world needed inspirational people doing real things and there have been painfully few identified such people anywhere in the world in recent months.

Oh I'm so happy to hear that this will be done in person. What a wonderful honor for a 100 years young man that has served his Queen and country so very faithfully over his lifetime.

This is a man that I would definitely deem a hero.

Mary Berry was said to have been “overwhelmed” to have been made a Dame in the Queen’s Birthday Honours.

Michael Sheen has handed back his OBE, as "called on" the end of practice of bestowing The Prince of Wales title to the heir apparent

Michael Sheen returned OBE to air views on royal family
The Welsh actor has revealed he gave back his OBE so he could call for the scrapping of the title Prince of Wales

Lewis Hamilton is so young; he's in the midst of his career.

Quite fun to read this article from last year about why it will be many years from 'now' before he will be considered for a knighthood.

Hamilton broke Schumacher's record but he does not pay taxes in the UK. Many people never warmed to him because he once said he grew up in a slum (Stevenage) and has a broader focus than the UK, he considers himself a cosmopolitan.

I remember that David Beckham was taken off the list many years ago because although he may pay taxes in the UK, he had a lot of money hidden in tax schemes offshore.

Lewis Hamilton is quite a "marmite" character, because there are people who really love or really hate him. Whilst he may have won BBC's Sport Personality of 2020 (based on public votes), most listeners and radio hosts on TalkRadio really dislike him.

When a recipient of an honour passes away , are the family required to return it to the crown or does it remain with the family.
I am thinking particularly of the RVO or the Royal Family Order.

I was reading a really interesting post in an other thread re Princess Alice and she was pictured wearing a family honour, and it struck me that although close to the throne at that time her descendants would be quite removed so made me wonder if these honours are returned on death.

The RVO the family is allowed to keep the insignia, but the collar must be returned on the death of the holder.

The Garter, the breast star and the lesser George are returned to the queen by the member's closest male relative by tradition.


Alice was Grand Dame Cross of the RVO and of the British empire. In both cases the collar must be returned on death, while other insignia is retained by the family of the recipient. As many of those who receive these orders have no relation at all to the royal family, the distance from the throne of Alice's grandchildren (2 of her 3 grandchildren are alive) is of little matter.

Well without getting too political I suspect this has more to do with British involvement in the invasion of Iraq. It was & remains deeply divisive & controversial.
