The Prime Minister announced that those involved in the coronavirus effort are to be recognised by the Queen in the next round of honours.
The publication of the Queen’s Birthday Honours list will be moved from June to the autumn. This is so it can include a range of ‘coronavirus heroes’ who are battling this pandemic on different fronts.
Recipients will receive their honours during investiture ceremonies at Buckingham Palace, Windsor Castle or the Palace of Holyroodhouse in Edinburgh.
There's a huge appetite to say thank you to all those on the front line, within our communities and in our public services, who are supporting the nation through these unprecedented times.
The honours system recognises exceptional contributions and will play an important role in showing the nation’s gratitude to all those involved in the response.
