His Majesty the King was today, Tuesday 12th December, graciously pleased to invest Michael Fabricant with a Knighthood at Windsor Castle.
Commenting after the ceremony, Michael says “This is an honour for Lichfield rather than merely for me.
“I was so pleased that it was His Majesty the King who invested me today. After he knighted me with his sword as I knelt before him, among other matters, we discussed Lichfield and the National Memorial Arboretum. It is a day I shall always remember.”
The knighthood was for political and public service and for service for exports resulting from his work before he became an MP.
