Mr Lightbody said afterwards: “It was going really well, Prince Charles, His Royal Highness was very kind and asked me about my music and writing.”

Actor Toby Jones received an OBE for services to drama, Sir Jeremy Fleming, the director of GCHQ, was made a Knight Commander of the Order of St Michael and St George for services to national security, and athlete Laura Sugar , who won a paracanoe gold medal at the Tokyo 2020 Paralympics, received an MBE.

“Fangirl Moment”

Ms Sugar said of being with Sir David: “It was very special to see him – he’s an absolute icon – and a bit of a fan girl moment. I can say that I was only a few meters away from him for a few minutes.

“I had no idea he would be here today, so that was very special.”

Founded in 1818, the Order of St. Michael and George is usually reserved for men and women in high office or those performing extraordinary or important non-military service in a foreign country.

Previous recipients have included Sir Tim Barrow, who served as the UK’s Permanent Representative to the EU, and Sir Iain Macleod, the former Legal Adviser to the Foreign Office. Arise (again) Sir David Attenborough, knighted for the second time
