Comedian and actor Rob Brydon has been recognised for his services to comedy and broadcasting with an MBE.
The Gavin and Stacey star said: "This is a great honour and an even greater surprise. I accept it not just for me but for short Welshmen everywhere."
The accolade comes a year after he was one of the hosts for the Queen's Diamond Jubilee concert outside Buckingham Palace.
Welsh comedian Rob Brydon and classical singer and television presenter Aled Jones are among those named.
Actors, popstars, business leaders and a former ITV News presenter are among those honoured in this year's Queen's Birthday Honours
