kensingtonroyalThe Duke of Cambridge attended investitures which were held today at Buckingham Palace.
His Royal Highness awarded the Polar Medal to Joanna Worsley – the wife of the late Antarctica explorer Lieutenant Colonel Henry Worsley.
Henry raised over £100,000 for the Endeavour Fund but died on a solo Antarctic crossing in 2016.
The #EndeavourFund was founded in 2012, as part of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry's Royal Foundation. The fund supports recovery of wounded, injured and sick Servicemen and women.
At the investiture today, from the world of sport, Jessica Ennis received her Damehood for services to athletics. And several Paralympians also received honours – including Lee Pearson, Sophie Christiansen and Jody Cundy.
Mark Rylance received his Knighthood for services to drama and Victoria Beckham received an #OBE for services to the fashion industry.
