The Foreign and Commonwealth Office is responsible for the Diplomatic Service and Overseas honours list, which is published to coincide with Her Majesty the Queen’s New Year and Birthday honours lists. UK honours are not automatically awarded to winners of the Nobel Peace Prize. Nominations are considered on their merits. The service to the UK should be of an outstanding or exceptional nature.
