The awards were created following the recommendation of a committee chaired by His Royal Highness The Duke of Edinburgh in 1965. The first awards, originally known as the Queen’s Awards to Industry, were made the following year.

Her Majesty’s Lord Lieutenants will be presenting the Awards to businesses locally throughout the year.
