Actress Kate Winslet has been made a CBE for services to drama by The Queen at Buckingham Palace.

The Reading-born star said it was "a completely different kind of honour" to her 2009 Oscar for The Reader.

Singer Gary Barlow, who masterminded The Queen's Diamond Jubilee concert in June, was made an OBE for services to the entertainment industry and charity.

Reading-born actress Winslet, who shot to worldwide fame in 1997 blockbuster Titanic, said there was "something incomparably overwhelming" about the day.
