Queen's birthday honours

Birthday Honours is a part of the British, Canadian, Australian, New Zealand and other Commonwealth Realms Honours Systems as a civic occasion on the celebration of the reigning monarch's official birthday when new members of most Commonwealth Realms honours are named. The awards are presented by the reigning monarch or head of state, currently Queen Elizabeth II.

Known as Queen's Birthday Honours (and King's Birthday Honours in times of a male monarch), all royal honours are published in the London Gazette, Canada Gazette, Commonwealth of Australia Gazette and New Zealand Gazette. The lists are also published in the daily newspapers of each realm.

Honours have been awarded on the monarch's birthday since at least 9 November 1901, the birthday of King Edward VII (1901–1910).[1][2] After 1908 the monarch's official birthday was moved to the first, second or third Saturday in June (for the UK). Other Commonwealth Realms celebrate the official birthday on different dates (generally late May or early June), and release their honours lists accordingly.
