Stella McCartney is honoured by the Queen

On Tuesday 26 March 2013, Stella McCartney, the second child of Beatle Paul McCartney and Linda Eastman, received her OBE medal from Queen Elizabeth II.

OBE stands for "Order of the British Empire", and it is the same award or distinction that her father received in 1965. On that occasion some angry war veterans sent back their medals...but it is extremely unlikely that anyone will send theirs back now that Stella has one.

41-year-old Stella McCartney received the medal as a distinction for her service in the fashion industry, and probably also for her work during (and before) the British Olympic Games in London 2012.
