A Royal Honour from the King is a one of the most highly regarded and prestigious accolades that an individual can receive.

Anyone can be nominated, but only exceptional people are honoured. Anyone, based anywhere in the world that meets the criteria, can be nominated for a UK honour and the title of BEM, MBE, OBE, CBE or Knighthood / Damehood.

Individuals can nominate anyone for an honour if they live or work in the UK or abroad and they’ve made significant impact in either. 

Our consultants have many years’ experience in working with Royal Honours candidates – from the committed local community champion, to the outstanding entrepreneur, from the leading industry expert to the dedicated philanthropist.

Many of those who apply will do so not only to garner recognition for the achievements of the nominee, but also to amplify the work they’re doing – having an honourable title will often act as a door opener and a mark of trust that sees their good work extend far and wide.

We go to great lengths to ensure that your nomination is as compelling as possible. In fact, on average our experts spend over 150 hours, the equivalent of around 20 working days, purely on researching and drafting a nomination. 

We meet with the nominator and interview supporters to gather the necessary background information about the nominee, and advise on all aspects of the nomination throughout and up to the point of submission. 

Our fees are based on a number of factors, including the length of the nomination and the number of support and update letters we take care of.

We offer 4 pricing levels to make what we do accessible to as many worthy people as possible.

“Thanks for drafting such a professional nomination. You offer a truly outstanding service. I’m so glad my wife and I found you before she submitted the nomination. You are a great listener and an excellent writer. You made me sound brilliant!”



how do I nominate someone for an honour?

To make a nomination for an royal honour you need to tell the Honours and Appointments Secretariat all about the nominee’s work and achievements in an official nomination document. You also need to provide a minimum of two supporting letters for your nomination although we would recommend between five and 15 letters.

Awards Intelligence can help you nominate someone for any of the King’s honour award, by professionally handling the whole nomination process for you.

A nomination for an honour cannot be resubmitted year on year until the desired result is achieved. If your nomination is unsuccessful you cannot re-nominate until a minimum of two years has passed, and then the nomination must show a significant difference to the first to be considered at all.

We can make sure your nomination has the best possible chance of getting the right result from the start.


No. Every single nomination is considered by the appropriate honours committee and will only be judged on the merit of the candidate’s achievements – not on who the nominator is, or on who drafted the nomination. 

The Cabinet Office are aware when a nomination has been professionally drafted and ensure that all nominations are considered equally. 

Awards Intelligence will make sure your nominee has the best chance of being awarded the recognition they deserve by putting their case forward in the most compelling, appropriate and relevant manner.

what are the benefits of receiving a royal honour?

Being awarded a royal honour carries many benefits. It’s not only recognition for outstanding service to the community or being a leader in your field, but also a great encouragement to do better and achieve even more for others. It will raise your profile, further enhance your reputation and instil trust of course – that vital ingredient for success in all walks of life.

It also provides a platform to talk about the cause or campaign you have been honoured for, thus helping to raise awareness.

Furthermore, very few other awards carry the same gravitas and are globally recognised and respected. In fact, it is arguably the most prestigious award in the world.


A criminal record will not necessarily prevent a person being considered for an honour, as long as there are no outstanding issues or remaining custodial sentence.
