Duo bowled over by honours


Cricket correspond­ent Jonathan Agnew reminded the Duke of Cambridge of how bad the senior royal is at cricket as William presented him with an MBE.

The 57-year-old said: “I watched William bowling and thought ‘he has not done very much of this before’. Then Harry came on and spooned the easiest catch of all time to William, who dropped it.

“So I asked him (William) today if his cricket had got any better and he said it had not.”

Former BBC newsreader Angela Rippon said collecting a CBE for championin­g the rights of people with dementia was “very special” because of the personal impact the illness has had on her life.

Miss Rippon, 72, has used her own experience­s of caring for her mother Edna, who was diagnosed with dementia in 2004, to try to help others with the condition. Her mother died in 2009.
