Police officer Keith Palmer, who died protecting members of the public and parliament during an attack at Westminster, was given a posthumous award for bravery in Queen Elizabeth's annual birthday honors on Friday, Britain's Cabinet Office said.

The honors pay tribute to those who have contributed to British life with their achievements in the arts, sciences or public service.



In the attack in March, a man drove a car into pedestrians on Westminster Bridge, killing four people, and then stabbed Palmer to death in the grounds of parliament. The attacker was shot dead at the scene.
