Gary Barlow - Gary Barlow 'Set For Obe Honour'

British singer Gary Barlow has landed a top award on Queen Elizabeth Ii's upcoming Birthday Honours List, according to a U.K. report.
The Take That star has been heavily involved with the monarch's Diamond Jubilee celebrations this year (12), writing a commemorative song and organising a celebratory pop concert, which took place in London on Monday (04Jun12).
Queen Elizabeth II is now preparing to thank Barlow for his efforts by handing him an Order of the British Empire (Obe) medal, according to Britain's The Sun.
A source tells the publication, "The Queen was delighted with Gary Barlow's brilliant work and dedication. She made it clear he should be rewarded at the first available opportunity.
"Mr. Barlow was told of Her Majesty's offer a few weeks ago. He was quite surprised, but he has accepted it."
The newspaper reports the news will be officially announced with the release of the Honours List next Saturday (16Jun12).
