George Osborne ruins the economy gets an honour at Buckingham palace
Former Chancellor receives honour at Buckingham Palace
Ruin the economy and get awarded with an honour "all in it together".
Former Chancellor George Osborne has been made a member of the Order of the Companions of Honour by Prince William.
Osborne, recognised in former prime minister David Cameron's resignation honours list, received the award during a Buckingham Palace investiture ceremony on Friday for political and public service.
The politician served as Chancellor for six years, first during the coalition government headed by Mr Cameron and later when the Tory leader won an outright majority following last year's general election.
Cameron was criticised for cronyism after his resignation honours list recognised a string of political supporters, Conservative Party donors and Downing Street staff.
Also being recognised during the Buckingham Palace investiture ceremony are three figures from the worlds of acting, television and broadcasting.
Dame Penelope Wilton, famed for her roles in Downton Abbey and the popular movies Shaun Of The Dead and The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, is being made a Dame Commander for services to drama.
The actress and former Blue Peter presenter Janet Ellis received an MBE for services to charities and theatre. Ellis has been honorary president of Maggie's since 2008.
Actor Adil Ray, best known for his BBC comedy series Citizen Khan, was also recognised with an OBE for services to broadcasting.
