Katherine receives CBE at Buckingham Palace

Today Katherine was presented with her CBE by the Princess Royal at an investiture ceremony at Buckingham Palace.

After collecting her award, she said: “I thought that the gold medal meant everything but this is the icing on the cake”.

“The Olympic medal is something you train for and it is realistic that you can get it but something like this is bestowed on you and it is a great honour to get it.”
