Recommended Posts

The Queen has approved the new government's recommendation to restore the titles of Knight (Sir) and Dame for the two highest classes of the New Zealand Order of Merit.

Principal and Distinguished Companian will revert to Knight/Dame Grand Companion and Knight/Dame Companion.

Those appointed to the first and second class under the previous government have also been given until the Queen?s Birthday in June to decide if they want to receive the accolade.
