Dame Priti Patel will also receive honours. The politicians were both on former prime minister Boris Johnson’s resignation honours list, which was branded a “catalogue of cronies” by his critics.

A convicted murderer who tackled the Fishmongers’ Hall terror attacker will also be recognised at Windsor Castle.

Steven Gallant was one of four men who confronted convicted terrorist Usman Khan until armed police arrived at the scene in November 2019.

Khan, who had two large knives and a fake suicide belt, fatally stabbed Cambridge graduates Jack Merritt, 25, and Saskia Jones, 23, and injured three other people before running on to London Bridge.

Gallant, one of two men convicted of killing Barrie Jackson in Hull in 2005, had been allowed out on licence for the first time when the incident occurred.

He will receive the Queen’s Gallantry Medal alongside Darryn Frost, who also confronted Khan.

The decoration is awarded for exemplary acts of bravery.

The four men who confronted Khan featured on this year’s Civilian Gallantry List, the last to be approved by the late Queen.

John Crilly and Lukasz Koczocik also stepped in to confront the attacker.

Commodore David Pond, the former chief executive of Great Britain Wheelchair Rugby is set to receive an MBE on Wednesday for services to the sport.

Pauline Barker, the founder of the Devon and Cornwall Wild Swimming group, is also set to receive an MBE for services to swimming in south-west England.
