Cherie Blair was awarded the CBE in the New Year Honours for her services to women's issues and charity.
Mrs Blair, 58, has used the prominence she gained as wife of former prime minister Tony Blair to raise both funds and awareness for a wide range of charities at home and overseas.
Among others, she is patron of Breast Cancer Care, Refuge, Scope and the Community Foundation for Merseyside, honorary vice-president - and formerly president - of Barnados, and president of the Loomba Foundation, which campaigns to alleviate the plight of widows around the world.
