Dame Emma, 59, who is described in the official citation of the honours committee as one of the UK's most versatile and celebrated actresses, receives her honour for services to drama.

Malcolm said he was "delighted and very proud" to receive the honour, having found his time as a magistrate "hugely rewarding".

Defoe said he felt "mixed emotions", with the award coming nearly a year after the death of six-year-old football mascot Bradley Lowery, with whom the player struck up a strong friendship as the little boy battled a rare childhood cancer.

Nigerian-born boxer Anthony Joshua has been awarded a special Order of the British Empire (OBE) By the Queen of England for his service to boxing in the United Kingdom.

"When you look at the talent in Australia, it has always perplexed me that we never had the number of nominations for women that we do for men", Stone said.

"I am delighted and extremely proud to be made a Member of the British Empire in the Queen's Birthday Honours List", said Katharine, who is now on maternity leave following the recent birth of her second child.

Music historian Glenn A Baker has been made a member of the Order of Australia, while WA Opera's General Manager Carolyn Chard has been recognised for significant service to the performing arts in executive roles, particularly in Western Australia, and to support for young artists.

In the business sphere Judy Naake, who made millions selling St Tropez self-tanning products, initially from the back of her vehicle, receives an MBE for services to entrepreneurship, the community and philanthropy.

In total, 1,057 people have received an award with 10% of the successful candidates come from a BAME background.
