New Year’s Honours 2023: Every person in London recognised by King Charles including Leah Williamson, Grayson Perry and Stephen Graham

Here is every person from London to be recognised in the New Year’s Honours List 2023.

Britain’s New Year’s Honours lists are an annual tradition - with everyone from sport stars, actors, and artists to community heroes and NHS staff recognised for their contributions.

This year’s lists includes individuals from London ranging from the Lionesses captain Leah Williamson, to artist Grayson Perry and actor Stephen Graham - as well as environmental campaigner Rosamund Adoo-Kissi-Debrah and charity bakery founder Alice Williams.

One notable Londoner becoming an MBE is Jawahir Roble who grew up playing football in Mogadishu and later became the UK’s first black, female, Muslim, hijab-wearing referee.

Key members of the England Lionesses football team are honoured after their outstanding performance in the summer, with squad captain Leah Williamson becoming an OBE.

And star player Lucy Bronze, golden boot Beth Mead, and England women’s top international goal scorer Ellen White are all awarded MBEs.

The New Year Honours list 2023 acknowledges 1,107 people in the UK this year, celebrating their outstanding achievements, with 955 candidates awarded a British Empire Medal (BEM) or made a Member of the British Empire (MBE) or an Officer of the British Empire (OBE).

Two thirds of the recipients - 673 people - are recognised primarily for their community work, while 548 women are recognised in the List, representing 50% of the total number.
