ABSTRACT
IT WAS once seen as the pinnacle of the Establishment, with membership limited to 24 drawn from the upper reaches of the Armed Forces, science and the arts. Service is as distinguished as always, but these days members of the Order of Merit reflect a changing Britain. A church service and Buckingham Palace lunch thrown by the Queen for members and their partners this week was revealing. Historian Sir Michael Howard was accompanied by his civil partner Mark James, artist David Hockney brought his assistant Jean-Pierre Goncalves de Lima, worldwide web founder Sir Tim Berners-Lee took girlfriend Rosemary Leith and playwright Sir Tom Stoppard brought Sabrina Guinness, once tipped as a possible bride for the Prince of Wales.
