Warm congratulations to Kate today! At a special investiture ceremony in Windsor Castle she received her CBE from the Queen.
Kate chose not to speak to the press after the ceremony but issued a short statement:
“I feel incredibly thrilled to receive this honour which I share with my family, friends and fellow musicians and everyone who has been such an important part of it all. Now I’ve got something really special to put on top of the Christmas tree.”
Kate has now added to the statement on her official site:
“The ‘everyone’ in the quote above of course includes all of you. Thank you so very much for all your fantastic support and encouragement. I feel extremely privileged to still have an audience. It’s you that have made my work, which would otherwise have just been creative projects, into a success.
Many, many thanks to the best fans ever,
PS I hate the term ‘fans’ but couldn’t think of how else to word it.”
We hope that you are enjoying your special day, Kate – richly deserved for the years of sheer talent, joy, inspiration and excitement you have poured into this world. Have a blast!
Peter, Krys, Dave and Seán x
