The King is the Grand Master of the Order of the British Empire, while the Queen oversees what is called a Grand Master.

The OBE was established in 1917 to honor war efforts, but the order has since been extended to include people who have distinguished themselves in a number of fields, including cultural fields.

About 2,000 people attended the service, all of whom were honored with orders.
