One of the UK’s most successful songwriters, Gary Barlow has been made an OBE in the Queen’s birthday honours for his charity work helping unemployed royalty.
In a statement to the press, Mr Barlow said:
“I’m absolutely thrilled and feel very privileged to be in the company of so many brilliant people, a few of whom have even had to do some real charity work to get their OBE.”
“I enjoy every minute of the work I do helping disadvantaged royals, with a lot of it being a reward in itself, so for somebody to decide I should get recognised for doing virtually nothing except be sycophantic to the right people a lot is just amazing.”
Friends of Gary expressed delight at the honour and praised him for his dedication to helping those even better off than himself:
“I’m not at all surprised he’s been honoured like this – Gary donates a lot of his own time and works so selflessly and tirelessly at helping disadvantaged royals he often even completely forgets to pay his taxes.”
