An honorary received by ralph lauren in knighthood london
Ralph Lauren has received an accolade from Prince Charles and it’s a doozy: Honorary Knight Commander of the Most Distinguished Order of the British Empire for Services to Fashion.
The designer was given with the insignia, presented by Queen Elizabeth II, in a special ceremony Wednesday at Buckingham Palace.
An organization statement declares Lauren is the prime American designer to be identified with an honorary knighthood. Ralph Lauren Corp. has distributed to a breast cancer research hub in London and intends to financially back a second center as well.
Lauren told via email he’s invariably been inspired by the history, attitudes, and culture of the U.K. and acknowledges the knighthood a “very special moment” as he praises 50 years in fashion.
