Mary Berry and Dizzee Rascal on Queen's Birthday Honours list
Celebrity chef Mary Berry and dirt pioneer Dizzee Rascal were featured on the list of honors for the Queen's Birthday.
Berry, who has earned national treasure status in six decades, was "overwhelmed" when he was made into a service lady for broadcasting, culinary arts, and charity.
It is "such a great honor," she said.
Dizzee Rascal, whose real name is Dylan Kwabena Mills, has been awarded an MBE for Services in Music.
In response to the news, Dame Mary added, "When I was first told that I was going to be a lady, don't really believe it. And then it's so exciting and you feel very proud.
"For most of my life, I have been fortunate enough to follow my passion of teaching cooking through books and media.
"Being a lady is really the icing on the cake."
The former Great British Bake Off judge joked, "I just wish my parents and brothers were here to share my joy as my only success at school was just an O-level - in the kitchen, of course."
Dame Mary is no stranger to the royal family who hosted meringue roulades with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge for their Berry Royal Christmas TV special last year.
The popular broadcaster, baker and food writer is also the patron of Child Bereavement UK after losing their 19-year-old son William in a car accident in 1989.
In 2018, she told the Graham Norton Show that she was once arrested at an airport after confusing baking ingredients with drugs.
Dizzee Rascal had five UK number one singles
Dizzee Rascal is widely recognized as one of the founding fathers of Grime - a UK-based electronic rap genre that emerged from the English capital at the beginning of the century.
In 2003, at the age of 19, the East London MC became the youngest artist to win the Mercury Prize with his debut album Boy in da Corner.
The senior statesman of the British rap game, who drops his seventh album E3 AF in late October, told the BBC in 2017 that he deserved to get top billing at the Glastonbury Festival.
"I've been to this festival for years, never disappoint," he said. "You can count on me."
"I'm basically at the stage where you have to get me to use this thing as a headline - because they didn't have British rappers headline at this festival."
His drive and success helped modern-day superstar Stormzy become the first black solo headliner in the history of the Worthy Farm event last year, bringing British hip-hop and grime into the mainstream.
Dame Mary is named Dame Commander by veteran Coronation Street star Maureen Lipman and writer Susan Hill of The Woman in Black. The former played the mother of the title character in Roman Polanski's Oscar-winning drama The Pianist from 2002.
