Hollywood actor Patrick Stewart will boldly go to Buckingham Palace tomorrow to be knighted by the Queen for a glittering career on stage and screen.

Famed for his roles in Star Trek and X-Men, Stewart will join the hallowed list of performers who have received one of the highest accolades for a lifetime of entertaining audiences.

The Queen is reported to be a fan of the star, who has enjoyed a 50-year career in movies, TV and the theatre including 16 years with the Royal Shakespeare Company.

When the knighthood was first announced Stewart said: "I am very proud to receive this honour. The theatre is and has always been my great joy."

Formula One driver Jenson Button will become an MBE for services to motorsport after clinching the driver's championship last year.

Sir Hugh Orde, the former chief constable of Northern Ireland, will be presented with the Queen's Police Medal while sculptor Maggi Hambling will be made a CBE.
