Arise Dame Katherine

Katherine has been officially made a Dame Commander this morning by Queen Elizabeth II during an Investiture ceremony at Buckingham Palace, London.

She became Britain’s most decorated female Olympic athlete during the Rio games after winning five Olympic medals over five consecutive games.

Speaking after the investiture, Glasgow-born Dame Katherine said the honour was “wonderful”.

“Although the title has been usable since January, it still doesn’t feel quite real,” she said.
