I burn with envy. The rest of us are damsels in distress compared to Kiwi Knights and their reinstated Royal Honours System, what Rafal Heydel-Mankoo, Editor of Burke's Peerage and Gentry, confided to me as being the "most finely crafted honours system in the Commonwealth" outside of the United Kingdom.
Government House in New Zealand has recently announced 70 new Knights and Dames as a result of the government's reinstatement of titular honours. Among those who received the equivalent of titular honours since they were abolished by the Labour government in 2000, fully 87 percent accepted the title of Sir or Dame, putting former Prime Minister Helen Clark's repulsion of honourific rank firmly in the minority.
Carpet knights they may be, but chivalry is alive and well in New Zealand!
