Lady Fraser of Carmyllie received an MBE for her services to charity in Edinburgh on Tuesday.

A ceremony at the Palace of Holyroodhouse saw a host of charitable and celebrity names receive honours ahead of a garden party hosted by the Queen and Duke of Edinburgh.

Lady Fraser is well known for her work with organisations such as the Ninewells Cancer Campaign, the Amy Barnet Skea Trust, Caring for Kids, Tenovus Tayside, Children in Need, and the University of Abertay Foundation.

She attended the ceremony with her children, Jane, Jamie and Katie and said she was thrilled to receive the award.

“I am particularly delighted to have received it at Holyrood since all of the charitable work that I have done is in Scotland,” she said.

“It is lovely for me that the family were able to be there with me for the ceremony.

“I feel my award reflects the hard work that has been out in by so many dedicated people I have been fortunate enough to work with.”

Poet laureate Professor Carol Ann Duffy met the Queen after being made a dame in the New Year Honours List in December 2014.

Wheelchair tennis star Gordon Reid was made an MBE for services to the sport, which he received in the latest New Year Honours List.

At the Paralympics in Rio last summer, he took singles gold and a silver medal in the doubles.

In January this year, he completed a career Grand Slam of doubles titles after winning the Australian Open with Belgian Joachim Gerard, and last year he won singles titles at the Australian Open and Wimbledon.

Joshua Littlejohn, co-founder of Social Bite, was made an MBE for services to social enterprise and entrepreneurship in Scotland.

Others attending the investiture ceremony included Michael Cavanagh, who was chairman of Commonwealth Games Scotland and is made an OBE for services to sport and the Commonwealth Games movement.

Professor Susan Deacon, assistant principal of Edinburgh University, is made a CBE for services to business, education and public service.
