Sir Andy Murray receives knighthood from Prince Charles at Buckingham Palace

Sir Andy Murray had only one wish as he received his knighthood for his daughters to be old enough to see him as received his Knighthood from the Prince Charles of Wales.

Murray received his knighthood from Prince Charles during an investiture ceremony held at the Buckingham Palace in recognition of his services to the sport of tennis and charity.




Sir Andy Murray presented a brief statement following his knighthood ceremony, which states as follows,

“I’m very proud to receive it. It’s a nice day to spend with my family – my wife and parents are here. 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.”

Andy Murray and his wife Kim are the parents of their three-year-old daughter named Sophia Olivia and their 18 months old daughter Edie.

As for his knighthood announcement, it was announced back in 2016 at the New Year Honors.

Recipients of the knighthood are allowed to choose the time when they would like to collect their honor and the most of his delay was caused due to Murray’s hectic sports schedule along with the effects of knighthood ceremony on his hip problem.

Earlier back in January this year, Andy Murray during a press conference held at the Australian Open revealed to the press in tears that he has plans to retire from the sort at the upcoming Wimbledon.

Murray who turned 32 years old earlier on Wednesday, has now undergone a hip resurfacing surgery and his rehabilitation has also begun.
