Antonia Fraser given damehood in New Year honours list

Harold Pinter’s widow, Antonia Fraser, is to swap her title from Lady to Dame, following her inclusion in the New Year Honours list as a ‘Dame Commander of the Order of the British Empire‘. Harold Pinter declined a knighthood in 1996, but had accepted a CBE in 1966 and became a Companion of Honour in 2002.

Dame Antonia responded to the honour in this Telegraph article. She stated she was “very pleased and very surprised” to receive it.
