Dame Kiri Te Kanawa recognised in the Queen’s Birthday Honours:

🎉🎉 HUGE NEWS!! 🎉🎉

Dame Kiri Te Kanawa is being made a Companion Of Honour in the Queen’s Birthday Honour’s List!!

Only 65 people in the world hold the honour at any one time.

“The Order of the Companions of Honour is an order of the Commonwealth realms. It was founded in June 1917 by King George V as a reward for outstanding achievements and is "conferred upon a limited number of persons for whom this special distinction seems to be the most appropriate form of recognition. Now described as "awarded for having a major contribution to the arts, science, medicine, or government lasting over a long period of time” – Wikipedia

“The Queens Birthday Honours is the marking of the reigning monarch’s official birthday by granting various individuals appointment into national or dynastic orders or the award of decorations and medals. The honours are presented by the monarch or a viceregal representative. New Year Honours and Birthday Honours are bestowed each year.”

Dame Kiri was awarded her Damehood in the 1982 Honours List after singing at the 1981 wedding of HRH Prince Charles, the Prince of Wales and Lady Diana.
