The award was presented to Monty by the Prince of Wales at Buckingham Palace today.

Speak to the Daily Mail newspaper, Monty said:

“It’s very nice to receive such an honour from His Royal Highness today as a lot of the things I do he has a keen interest in. That means… there is a personal connection, which is good.”
