Theresa May has recognised key political aides and her sporting hero Sir Geoffrey Boycott in her resignation honours list.
Ex-Brexit negotiator, Olly Robbins, who helped form Mrs May's three-times rejected Brexit deal, will receive a knighthood.
Also featured on the 60-strong list is Sir Kim Darroch, who was forced to resign as ambassador to the United States after falling out with the Trump administration. He is to be made a life peer and will sit as a non-party crossbencher.
In other appointments, Metropolitan Police Commissioner Cressida Dick becomes a dame, and Ruth Hunt, the ex-chief executive of Stonewall, is made a crossbench life peer.
Every departing Prime Minister is entitled to draw up a list, which must be approved by the Cabinet Office.
However, the inclusion of Sir Geoffrey has caused a stir, with the former cricketer convicted in France in 1998 of beating his then-girlfriend in a hotel.
Domestic abuse campaigners are unhappy with the move, with co-acting chief executive of Women's Aid, Adina Claire, calling his inclusion "very disappointing".
But Sir Geoffrey said he "couldn't give a toss" about criticism of his knighthood.
A source close to Mrs May said the list recognised the people who had made "a significant contribution to public life" during her political career.
The Lord Speaker, Lord Fowler, said May's list was "substantially smaller" than those drawn up by predecessors, helping to reduce the size of the House of Lords.
"I hope that the current Prime Minister continues this policy of restraint," he added.
