UK honors cave res­cue divers, Twiggy, Palin

The Herald-Sun (Sunday) - - Stay connected -

Bri­tish divers who res­cued young soc­cer play­ers trapped in a flooded cave in Thai­land are among those be­ing rec­og­nized in Bri­tain’s New Year’s Honors List, along with 1960s model Twiggy and Monty Python star Michael Palin.

Twiggy, a model who shot to star­dom dur­ing the Bea­tles era, will be­come a “dame” – the fe­male equiv­a­lent of a knight – while Palin, whose sec­ond ca­reer has seen him be­come an ac­claimed travel doc­u­men­tary maker, re­ceives a knight­hood.

Jim Carter, who played the acer­bic Mr. Car­son in “Down­ton Abbey,” was also rec­og­nized, as was film­maker Christo­pher Nolan, di­rec­tor of “In­cep­tion” and “Dunkirk,” and best-sell­ing au­thor Philip Pull­man, cre­ator of the “Dark Ma­te­ri­als” tril­ogy.
