Meanwhile, another national treasure, Sir David Attenborough, who was knighted in 1985, has been given an upgrade – receiving a Knight Grand Cross in the diplomatic list announced by the Foreign Office.
The award, for service in a foreign country, is presented for the 94-year-old’s contribution to broadcasting and conservation.
The list is usually published in June, when the Queen celebrates her official birthday, but it was postponed so that individuals who played crucial roles in the first months of the coronavirus outbreak could be added.
Maureen Lipman received a Commander of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire (CBE) honour from the Queen back in 1999. Mary Berry was also honoured with the same accolade back in a 2012 ceremony.
