One of HM The Queen's many roles is to reward excellence and outstanding achievement.

In addition to decorations awarded through the honours system, The Queen presents a number of Prizes and Medals in her own Name. These Special Honours reflect outstanding achievement either by individuals or by groups.

The Lord-Lieutenant often represents The Queen in presenting Awards in the County including:


The Queen’s Awards for Enterprise

The Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service

The Elizabeth Cross


From time to time the Lord-Lieutenant will present other awards and honours on behalf of the monarch.

The Lieutenancy is also heavily involved in promoting and organising The Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service in Buckinghamshire.
