  1. An Order of the British Empire is NOT a 'title of nobility' and does not make the recipient a noble. Your has been given an Order Award, not a title, and it goes AFTER her name, not preceding it. She is not a Dame, Baroness, Viscountess, Countess, Marchioness or Duchess. She cannot be addressed as Lady and has not been admitted to the ranks of nobility, nor given a life peerage…she has not been admitted to the Peerage at all, and the Award is not hereditary.

    You really ought to get your terms RIGHT.
