Prior to 1996 there were no Honorary Fellows, but there was a way to be elected to the Fellowship under the Statute 12 arrangements.
There are currently three Fellows who were elected under this arrangement (their election year is given in brackets):
John Palmer, Earl of Selborne 
Sir David Attenborough 
HRH The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh
