    Jonathan Pryce has received a knighthood in Queen Elizabeth’s Birthday Honours

    The ‘Game of Thrones’ star – who is also set to play the Queen’s late husband Prince Philip in the final two seasons of Netflix series ‘The Crown’ – will now be known as Sir Jonathan Pryce, after he was named as a recipient of an honour in the monarch’s 2021 Birthday Honours list


    He said in a statement: "That the UK continues to honour those that work in the arts, acknowledges the great contribution artists make to the way we live our lives.

    “When I began work at The Liverpool Everyman under Alan Dosser in 1972, I saw theatre as an implement of change - to entertain and to inform.

    "The arts remind people to be kinder, more understanding, questioning and to be more empathetic."

    Jonathan, 74, also said he’s “proud” to receive the honour after a career that has spanned almost five decades.

    He added: "After almost 50 years as an actor, I am proud to think that the work and ideals that I have shared with my friends and colleagues is being honoured in this way.”

    Other stars receiving honours include pop megastar Lulu, 72, who has been handed a CBE for her 57 year career as a singer, as well as her countless contributions to charities and fundraising.

    Skunk Anansie frontwoman Skin is also on the list to receive an OBE, while ‘Great British Bake Off’ star Prue Leith will be made a Dame, and former ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ judge Arlene Phillips is to be made Dame Commander of the Order of the British Empire.

    Singers Alison Moyet and Engelbert Humperdinck both get MBEs for their services to music, as does broadcaster Simon Mayo, while presenter Sue Barker will be handed a CBE for services to sport, broadcasting and charity.
