Official: Dame Maggie Smith is made a “Companion of Honour” for services to drama, in the Queen’s Birthday Honours List, 2014. (x)
Companion of Honour awards were founded by the Queen’s grandfather, King George, in June 1917 in recognition of outstanding achievements in the arts, science and politics and are strictly limited to just 47 Brits at any one time, plus the monarch. New admissions come only with another’s death and the Queen is understood to have major say in who is given the gong.
