On the last day of the year, while we celebrate by partying it up and making decisions which we will likely regret the following morning, the Queen of England takes a more eloquent approach and instead rings in the new years in with a fresh list of honoraries.
Being a lady of style and elegance, every year she recognises and gives honours to those who have contributed to multiple facets of society, from the military, to education and fashion. This year is no different, each of the honorees are masters of their own field and have firmly left their mark in history.
We have these recipients of the Queen’s 2017 honours to thank for facilitating the shaping fashion and popular culture as we know it today, click through our gallery to see some names of distinction that we think you should know.
