Dresser recognised on royal list
The Queen
The honour recognises service to the Royal Family
The woman who looks after the Queen's outfits for public engagements has been made a Member of the Royal Victorian Order in the Birthday Honours.

Royal dresser Angela Kelly has worked for the Queen over the last 12 years.

The Queen's bodyguard, Inspector Carol Quirk, who had previously been employed by Diana, Princess of Wales, has also been made an MVO.

The award - selected independently of the main honours list - recognises service to the Royal Family.

The same honour was also bestowed on Wing Commander Richard Pattle, one-time equerry to the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall, and retired journalist Peter Archer, former Press Association court correspondent.
