Queen’s Birthday Honours List delayed until autumn due to COVID-19 but you can nominate your personal hero for a special award @WeAreBCR

The Queen’s Birthday Honours List, which recognises the achievements of a wide-range of UK figures, has been postponed from its traditional June date this year due to the coronavirus.

The awards, ranging from knighthoods to MBEs, were scheduled to be handed out on the 94-year-old royal’s birthday on the second Saturday in June (her ‘official’ birthday, not her actual birthday which she recently celebrated on April 21), which this year falls on June 12.

Instead, they will now be pushed back until the autumn, according to BBC journo Lizo Mzimba who took to twitter to state that PM Boris Johnson had confirmed the news in a statement to Parliament. “The list and future lists will include individuals being recognized for efforts related to Covid-19,” he wrote.


You can nominate your personal hero who’s gone the extra mile during the crisis and made a real difference to you personally, or people that you know e.g. a volunteer who has been looking after isolated individuals, or who has given hours to their local foodbank.
