The Prince of Wales has awarded Sir David Attenborough, a celebrated television personality and broadcasting service provider, with honor for his dedicated work in TV production and conservation efforts.

On Wednesday, Sir David was given the award at an investiture ceremony at Windsor Castle by Prince Charles. Notably, The Queen knighted him in 1985. 

The Knight Grand Cross of the Order of St. Michael and St. George was handed to Sir David for his latest documentaries regarding the natural world as well as the climate change movement; this honor is more prestigious than before. 

It was a great honor to be recognized at this prestigious event. The British broadcaster, whose documentaries include The Green Planet and A Plastic Ocean, was put under the spotlight 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.” 

Sir David called on everyone in April to take measures to protect nature and the planet – this earned him the title Champion of the Earth by the UN’s Environment Programme. 

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.
