Olympic gold medallist Mo Farah and actor Ewan McGregor have arrived at Buckingham Palace to receive their honours:
McGregor is to be awarded an OBE.
Actor Ewan McGregor will also collect the OBE for services to drama and charity today.
The 42-year-old Scot first found fame after playing heroin addict Mark Renton in director Danny Boyle's 1996 classic Trainspotting. He has since combined huge roles such as Obi-Wan Kenobi in Star Was with smaller independent movies. He also works with children charities Unicef and Go Campaign.
Olympic athlete Mo Farah will receive his CBE for services to athletics today. The double gold medallist, who grew up in west London, triumphed in both the 5,000m and 10,000m at last year's London Games.
With his trademark 'Mobot' celebration, the 30-year-old will pick his award up from Buckingham Palace after becoming one of the faces of Britain's golden summer of sport.
