The British Highness has honored British actor Daniel Craig, who played James Bond in five films, with the honor bestowed upon real diplomats or spies. In the United Kingdom, these awards are usually given to genuine diplomats or spies. Craig has been appointed to the Order of St Michael and St George as a Companion (CMG). By bestowing this honor on him, Queen Elizabeth-II defied royal tradition.
This is the same award given to the film’s fictional Bond. Daniel, who lives in Chester, England, has been honored for his “services to film and theater.” Barbara Broccoli and Michael Wilson, the producers of the Bond films, have also been made Commanders of the Order of the British Empire (CBE).
Daniels had previously been named Honorary Commander of the United Kingdom’s Royal Navy. Daniel expressed his gratitude for the honorable position by saying that he felt privileged and honored.
