The Order of the Honeybee is a group of individuals whom Terry Pratchett posthumously asked to protect his legacy. Each received a letter from Terry after his death, and was formally presented with a golden honeybee pin at his Memorial at the Barbican on 14 April, 2016.

The primary members of the Order are Grand Master Rob Wilkins, Lady Lyn Pratchett, Rhianna Pratchett and Sandra Kidby (who runs Discworld.com).
