Ken Bruce receives his MBE in ceremony at Buckingham Palace

Ken Bruce has been awarded an MBE at an investiture ceremony at Buckingham Palace.

The Palace said that Ken is being made an MBE for his services to raising awareness of autism, as well as his work in radio and within charity.

He was recognised in the King’s Birthday Honours in June and received the award at the Palace on Friday.

Ken said it was “great surprise and privilege” to be awarded the Honour and he never thought it would happen to him.

He also said he hopes being made an MBE will highlight the challenges facing autistic people following his son’s diagnosis.
