Apple's new SVP of Retail and former CEO of Burberry Angela Ahrendts will be made an honorary Dame of the British Empire today, reports the DailyMail.

However, since Ahrendts is American, it is unlikely to be a glamorous affair, says the report.

Instead of a trip to Buckingham Palace to receive her gong from the Queen, the 53 year old American will have to make her way to the non-descript headquarters of the Department of Business, Innovation and Skills in Westminister. The master of ceremonies at the event will be business secretary Vince Cable, not Her Majesty. Sources said the ceremony will be ‘very low key’.

Non British citizens aren't entitled to receive their honour from the Queen at Buckingham Palace. Ahrendts will be allowed to use the letters DBE (Dame of the British Empire) after her name; however, she cannot use the title 'Dame'.

The DailyMail says Ahrendts begins at Apple this month, while the official announcement indicates she will start sometime this spring.
