On November 22, King Charles III bestowed a distinguished royal award upon Jisoo, Jennie, Rosé, and Lisa of BLACKPINK, designating them as Members of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire (MBE). Following the Buckingham Palace event, conversations centered on the unique benefits that Rosé would have as a result of winning the medal.
Unlike Lisa, Jisoo, and Jennie from BLACKPINK, who are only eligible for “honorary” titles, Rose is eligible for “full” accolades because she is a dual citizen of South Korea and New Zealand. Rosé will receive particular benefits because she is a member of the British Commonwealth and the head of state of the United Kingdom.
For those who are unaware, those who have made noteworthy contributions to the community in a variety of fields—including the arts, sciences, culture, and more—are awarded the MBE designation.
What privileges are conferred to Rosé?
In addition to being given the title Roseanne Park MBE, the K-pop sensation is eligible for a number of benefits, including being awarded a British Knighthood, having her family’s coat of arms (a royal insignia), and more. Netizens were particularly interested in the fact that Rosé (and her offspring) may wed in St. Paul’s Cathedral, one of the royal wedding locations, because it has a dedicated chapel for those holding the prestigious MBE award. The 1981 nuptials of Prince Charles and Princess Diana took place there as well.
Fans are awestruck
Rosé is eligible for a number of benefits as a citizen of the United Kingdom, which has sparked a lot of debate among internet users on the site. When fans learn about the benefits, they are shocked, especially since she can get married in the same location as royal weddings. While some followers are giddy with joy and referring to their idol as a real queen, others are in disbelief at the amount of benefits Rosé has been given since this accomplishment.
Amidst the excitement around honorary medals, Rosé revealed a preview for the December 6 publication of 2024 Season’s Greetings: From HANK & ROSÉ To You. To celebrate the start of the year-end festivities, the idol’s admirers have been given a unique present.
