Prince William presents honours at Windsor Castle
Britain’s Prince William presented honours to “deserving people from all walks of life” at Windsor Castle.
The 33-year-old royal awarded an OBE to Huw Jenkins, the Chairman of Swansea City soccer team, while he handed a CBE to David Bull, the Chief Executive of Unicef UK.
Meanwhile, Sir James MacMillan was Knighted by the Duke of Cambridge for services to music, and Amir Cheema was awarded an MBE for his work as the Founder of UK Muslim Scouts.
A statement on the official Twitter page of the British monarchy said: “The Duke of Cambridge has been presenting honours to deserving people from all walks of life.”
The event came shortly after Prince William paid tribute to 10 Birmingham First World War heroes during his visit to the city earlier this week.
The Duke of Cambridge unveiled 10 plaques that honour the city’s bravest men, all of whom were previously awarded the coveted Victoria Cross, the highest military decoration given to British soldiers.
The plaques have been commissioned by the government to honour all those awarded the Victoria Cross during the conflict.
Some 627 commemorative paving stones are being laid around the country to honour Britain’s war heroes as part of a five-year initiative, which was first announced in 2013.
