Individuals from around Wales have been recognised in the Queen's Birthday Honours.
Welsh Secretary Alun Cairns described those honoured as "outstanding individuals" adding he was "delighted" to congratulate them.
Among this year's recipients is author Sarah Waters who will be made an OBE for services to literature. The Pembrokeshire-born novelist is famed for her books including 'Tipping the Velvet' and 'Fingersmith'.
The 52-year-old said she was "delighted and a little dazed" by the news.
Wales women's manager Jayne Ludlow was also honoured for her "huge contribution to raising the profile of women’s football in Wales".
She was also praised for having "elevated women’s football in Wales to be the most participated women’s and girl’s team sport".
Other individuals honoured in Wales included a number of academics.
Professor Antony Bayer, Chair of Medicine at Cardiff University, was praised for his work on dementia care and support in Wales. While Professor Lynne Boddy was recognised for her pioneering research in woodland ecosystems.
Welsh Secretary Alun Cairns described the recipients as inspirational.
Another recipient was Josh Llewellyn Jones who will receive an OBE for services to Cystic Fibrosis. Last year Josh was awarded ''Fundraiser of the Year'' at the Pride of Britain Awards. The 31-year-old has raised over £80,000 to help children living with the same condition as him.
