Fenella Fielding Awarded An OBE In Queen's Birthday Honours List

Social workers, volunteers and people who have made large donations have also been formally recognised for their achievements and community service.

The 28-year-old, who now holds WBA, IBF and WBO titles and boasts an undefeated professional record, picked up an MBE back in 2013 after claiming Olympic gold at the London 2012 Games.

"The only sadness", she said was "that our wonderful mother died a few weeks ago and so she won't be able to see us get our awards - but I'm sure she's looking down and smiling with characteristic, motherly pride!"

"I like to think this award honours that, and the importance of literature and creativity in the classroom".

Renowned war correspondent Kate Adie is made a CBE for services to media, while Stacey Dooley, known for her BBC Three investigative series covering topics ranging from the fight against Isis to the abortion debate, receives an MBE for services to broadcasting.

Joseph Berry was also awarded a BEM for services to music and the community in Newry.

It's perhaps in his very nature then that the mischievously humble 37-year-old from Carcoar would consider himself somehow unworthy of being appointed Officer of the Order of Australia (AO) as part of the Queen's Birthday honours.

HIV researcher Professor David Cooper was posthumously awarded the Companion of the Order of Australia for his eminent service to medicine, particularly in the area of HIV/AIDS research, as a clinician, scientist and administrator, to the development of treatment therapies, and to health programs in South East Asia and the Pacific.

Jennifer Nutt received the medal for services to the community in Pangbourne, Tidmarsh and Sulham.

She has been recognised for her work as a role model within the industry and for her contribution's to the nation's cultural identity.

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