Andy Murray Receives His Knighthood At Buckingham Palace

Tennis superstar Sir Andy Murray has received his knighthood from Prince Charles at Buckingham Palace.

 

The 32-year-old three-time Grand Slam champion and his wife Kim have two daughters – three-year-old Sophia and 18-month-old Edie.

 

He said he wished his two young girls had been old enough to share the special occasion with him.

 

“I’m very proud to receive it. It’s a nice day to spend with my family – my wife and parents are here,” he said in a brief statement afterwards.

 

“I’d have liked to (have brought) my kids but I think they’re a bit young.

 

“I’ll show them the medal when I get home.”

 

Earlier this year, Sir Andy took time to accept his knighthood due to concerns it may have an adverse impact on his career.
