Harvey Weinstein has been stripped of his honorary CBE by Queen Elizabeth II.

In March, the disgraced movie producer was sentenced to 23 years in prison after being found guilty of third-degree rape and a first-degree criminal sexual act.

And he had the honour of Commander of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire removed following his conviction.

Weinstein was honoured for his services to the film industry in 2004, but the decision to remove the accolade was made at a recent meeting of the Honours Forfeiture Committee.
