Among the Welsh people honoured in the list is former Wales and British Lion star Shane Williams.
The 35 year-old from Ammanford has been awarded an MBE for his services to rugby.
Had letter in post today with Mr Shane Williams MBE on it! Looks strange!From @ShaneWilliams11 on Twitter:
Steve Khaireh, from Grangetown in Cardiff, has also been recognised for services to Young People in Cardiff.
Although Steve is modest about receiving the award, those around him say there is nobody more deserving.
The Secretary of State for Wales, Cheryl Gillan has espressed her congratulations to the Welsh people honoured in this year's Queen's Birthday Honours List.

Each and every one of them has been selected for their dedication, commitment and tireless work in helping to improve the lives of others, and these awards are a testament to the esteem in which they are held in their communities. Congratulations to you all.
