Sir Lewis Hamilton joined by proud mum as he’s knighted by Prince of Wales days after controversial F1 title defeat

SIR LEWIS HAMILTON has received his knighthood from Prince Charles at Windsor Castle. The Formula One star, 36, received the honour for his services to Motorsport. Hamilton received an MBE in 2009, a year after his first world championship win. Asked previously about a knighthood, Lewis said: “When I think about that honour I think about people like my grandad who served in the war. “It is very surreal, when you grew up watching the news like everyone else, hearing your name in the House of Lords or the House of Commons or in Parliament. “It is very very surreal to hear that with all the things going on in the world that they have a moment and acknowledge the work that I have done.
