Writer JK Rowling, author of the “Harry Potter” series, has been made a “Companion of Honour” by the Duke of Cambridge, Prince William, BBC reports.
The “Companion of Honour” is a special award, held by only 65 people at a time.
Rowling, accepting the award, said she was “deeply honoured.”
“To be included in the distinguished and diversely talented company of the other Companions of Honour, especially as a female writer, is a particular privilege,” she said.
The investiture was held at the Buckingham Palace, and Rowling was accompanied by her husband, Neil Murray.
