|The Queen giving Kate Bush her CBE for services to Music: Her Majesty is wearing the White and Pink Gold Flower Brooch
During the investiture, representatives of various areas of British society were honoured, from Olympic medallists to singers. Among the big non-sports related names was Kate Bush who received CBE for services to Music.
Bush became a global sensation after the release of her debut single “Wuthering Heights” in 1978. A highly successful album, “The Hounds of Love” followed in 1985, which included one of her most famous songs – “Running Up That Hill”. Recently, the singer has been largely out of public eyes.
