Honour a chap as king (6)


I believe the answer is:


'king' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)

'honour a chap' is the wordplay.
'honour' becomes 'OBE' (Order of the British Empire).
'a chap' becomes 'ron' (short for Ronald).

'as' acts as a link.

(Other definitions for oberon that I've seen before include "charming king" , "Shakespearean role" , "Shakespeare's fairy king" , "Spirited king" , "Play King" .)

I've seen this clue in the Evening Standard.
