Sir David Attenborough has today received his second Knighthood in an investiture ceremony at Windsor Castle. 
As the BBC reports, the 96-year-old broadcaster was previous knighted by Queen Elizabeth II in 1985. Today, he was officially awarded the Knight Grand Cross of the Order of St Michael and St George – an even rarer and more prestigious honor – by Prince Charles
According to the Royal Family's website, the order was launched in 1818 and now recognizes "service in a foreign country, or in relation to foreign and Commonwealth affairs, for example the work of foreign-service officers and diplomats."
Other recipients of the Knight Grand Cross of the Order of St Michael and St George include Dame Sandra Mason, the former governor-general and now president of Barbados, and The Lord Wilson of Tillyorn, the former governor of Hong Kong. It's safe to say Attenborough is in very illustrious company indeed.
He received his latest accolade in recognition of his services to TV broadcasting and conservation. Please join us in wishing him the heartiest of congratulations.
