CMG awards are usually awarded for service in a foreign country “for example the work of foreign-service officers and diplomats,” per the Royal Family’s official website. 

Craig’s award is a full-circle moment for Bond, who was fictionally attributed the honor in 1954, a mention of which is made in Bond’s obituary in Fleming’s book “You Only Live Twice.”

Bond-film producers Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli were also awarded CBEs (Commander of the Order of the British Empire) for services to film, drama, philanthropy, and skills.
