Queen Elizabeth Honours Joshua With OBE


Paralympian Kurt Fearnley and author Kate Grenville are among the 1007 Australians on this year's Queen's Birthday Honours List.

I am pleased to see the Queen's Birthday honours recognise the achievements of a diverse and inspiring number of our fellow Scots.

This is what the honours system should be all about, recognising not just those in the public eye whose achievements are familiar to us all, but giving due credit to those who go about their good deeds unnoticed and unthanked by those outside the small sphere in which their work is known. I offer my honest congratulations to these recipients on their worthy honours.

In the 100th anniversary year of women's suffrage, there are a range of awards for women at the forefront of their professions or who have championed women's rights, including Yvonne Coghill, director of workforce race equality, who has been made a CBE for their commitment to equality and diversity in the NHS.

Joshua, who is looking to take on American Deontay Wilder or Russian Alexander Povetkin before the end of the year, was awarded his OBE for services to boxing.

Mom wanted me to do a film like 'Sairat': Janhvi
It's not going to be easy but I know you are ready for all the madness that will ensue", the Mubarakaan actor wrote. Janhvi also admitted she was quite nervous at her first trailer launch: "I am nervous but also happy".

"I am delighted and extremely proud to be made a Member of the British Empire in the Queen's Birthday Honours List", said Katharine, who is now on maternity leave following the recent birth of her second child.

She added: "I dedicate this award to everyone in our team and to the young people that we care for".

John Short, chief executive at the trust, said: "I was so delighted to hear that Katharine has been awarded this well-deserved honour".

William Calvert has been recognised for services to business, charity and the community in Thirsk.

Forty-nine percent of the honorees are women, while 10% of all those on the list are from black and minority ethnic (BAME) backgrounds.
