A very surprising omission from the list just published by the Cabinet Office of people who refused honours in the years 1951-99.
The Lyttelton family have correspondence concerning one honour turned by Humphrey Lyttelton (1921- 2008) under the Callaghan government in the late 1970’s, and also of a knighthood offered to him under the Major government in the early 1990’s. Samantha nods in approval. A legend.
