Prince Harry knighted by Queen Elizabeth

OHMYGOSSIP — Prince Harry was knighted by her grandmother Queen Elizabeth II in a private ceremony at Buckingham Palace.

The 89-year-old monarch made her grandson a Knight Commander of the Royal Victorian Order (KCVO) in a private ceremony, a spokesperson for Kensington Palace confirmed yesterday (04.06.15).

The 30-year-old royal received the honour – which was founded in April 1896 by Queen Victoria and is often given by the monarch to members of the royal household for their work – for his “services to the sovereign” and the UK.

The news was broken on the official Kensington Palace Twitter account.

It read: “The Queen has appointed Prince Harry to be a Knight Commander of the Royal Victorian Order #KCVO.

“Awards in The Royal Victorian Order are made personally by The Queen for services to the Sovereign.”

The Palace also shared a photo of Harry’s Royal Victorian Order Inisignia, captioning the picture: “Here’s a photo of the #KCVO Insignia that The Queen presented to Prince Harry privately at #BuckinghamPalace today.”

Harry – who is set to leave his position in the army after a decade later this year – is well known for his charitable work and for founding the Invictus Games, a sporting competition for injured servicemen and women.
