Singer Adele will be presented with an MBE by the Prince of Wales today.
The 25-year-old performer who found fame after a friend posted her demo on MySpace in 2006, already has a bulging trophy cabinet, from Brit Awards to Grammys, and most recently an Oscar for her James Bond song Skyfall.
Adele will receive the MBE for services to music during an investiture service at Buckingham Palace.
Also being honoured is Christian Horner, the team principal of the Red Bull Formula One team which has won four consecutive constructors' and drivers' world championships. He will be awarded an OBE for services to motorsport.
Margaret Thatcher's former private secretary Edward Leigh will follow in his father's footsteps when he is knighted by the prince.
Paralympians Josie Pearson and Aled Davies, who both won gold in the discus during London 2012, will be awarded MBEs.
