A long-standing servant of the Queen who features in the spoof Bond film made for the 2012 Olympics opening ceremony is one of a number of people to be recognised in her Diamond Jubilee honours list.

Paul Whybrew, the Queen's page, who greets Bond star Daniel Craig at Buckingham Palace and introduces him to the Queen - "Mr Bond, Your Majesty" - is made Lieutenant of the Royal Victorian Order (LVO).

The 6ft 4in page known as Big Paul has worked for the Queen for more than 30 years.

Her personal assistant and senior dresser Angela Kelly who is also made an LVO.

Miss Kelly, who organises the Queen's wardrobe, designed the dress and coat the Queen wore at the wedding of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

The Queen has also honoured her senior correspondence officer at Buckingham Palace, Sonia Bonici, who oversaw responses to tens of thousands of letters during the Diamond Jubilee, and is made a Member of the Royal Victorian Order (MVO).

A number of key figures in the organisation and coverage of the Diamond Jubilee celebrations earlier this year are also recognised. They include Ben Weston, BBC executive director of the Diamond Jubilee Weekend, who is made an LVO.

Mr Weston was forced to defend the BBC's coverage of the Diamond Jubilee river pageant after complaints from the public. He said the corporation did its "best on an extraordinarily technically complicated" day.

Also picking up honours are Robert Williams, who produced the Diamond Jubilee concert at Buckingham Palace, and Frances MacLeod, head of the Diamond Jubilee unit at the Department for Culture, Media and Sport, both of whom are made a Commander of the Royal Victorian Order.

Chief Superintendent Julia Pendry, Metropolitan Police operational and tactical commander during the jubilee celebrations, is made an MVO.

Bruno Peek, from Norfolk and pageant master for the Diamond Jubilee Beacons, is made an LVO and Peter Stewart, of the Eden Project in Cornwall and director of the Big Jubilee Lunch, is made an MVO.

The Royal Victorian Order was founded in 1896 by Queen Victoria as a way of rewarding personal service to her, on her own initiative rather than by ministerial recommendation.

The order is entirely within the Queen's personal gift.
