The Prince of Wales has given a distinguished royal honor to Sir David Attenborough for his services in television, broadcasting and conservation.
The Queen knighted Sir David in 1985, and on Wednesday, Prince Charles awarded him another accolade at an investiture ceremony in Windsor Castle.
The prestigious Knight Grand Cross of the Order of St. Michael and George was handed to Sir David for his climate change documentaries, which have captured the natural world.
The highly-esteemed British broadcaster – whose distinguished documentaries count The Green Planet and A Plastic Ocean – was recognized at a juncture at the Platinum Jubilee concert organized outside Buckingham Palace last weekend.
A video of Sir David was shown in the palace. In addition, the Duke of Cambridge stressed the attempts of “visionary environmentalists.”
In April, Sir David emphasized how we must take measures to preserve nature and our planet. He is known as a Champion of Earth by the UN’s Environment Programme for his commitment to this cause.
In Windsor, besides Sir David, Snow Patrol singer Gary Lightbody received his OBE on Wednesday for his contributions to music and charity in Northern Ireland, as well as actor Toby Jones for his contributions to drama.
