Have your say

Former Lieutenant Governor Air Marshal Ian Macfadyen has received a surprise Knighthood for his services as Keeper of the Queen’s Castle.

Having been governor and constable of Windsor Castle for the last five years, he attended what he thought was a routine meeting with Her Majesty – only to emerge as Sir Ian Macfadyen.

He was received by The Queen who conferred on him the honour of Knighthood and invested him with the Insignia of a Knight Commander of the Royal Victorian Order.
