The century-old Order was started by King George V in June 1917 as a benefit for exceptional accomplishments in the arts, literary works, songs, scientific research, politics, sector or religious beliefs. It is a special award held by no greater than 65 people at any type of offered time, and one which recognises solutions of nationwide significance. J.K. Rowling was made a Buddy of Honour this year together with Sir Paul McCartney, Delia Smith, Sir Terence Conran and also others.

Of the honour, she said “to be included in the distinguished as well as diversely gifted firm of the various other Companions of Honour, especially as a women author, is a certain advantage.”
