Dame Deborah James’ royal fans

Sophie, Countess of Wessex isn’t the only royal fan that Deborah has.

Last month, Prince William himself visited her to award her a damehood. Deborah was made a dame by the Queen after raising millions of pounds for Cancer Research.

Deborah shared some pictures of the royal visit on her Instagram last month. In the pictures, Deborah can be seen smiling with William and her family. In others, Deborah poses with her damehood, and in another William shares a drink with the James’.

“Prince William actually came to our family house today!!” Deborah captioned the snaps.

“I am utterly honoured that he joined us for afternoon tea and champagne, where he not only spent a generous amount of time talking to my whole family but also honoured me with my Damehood.”

She added: “It was such a special day for my whole family, making memories to last a lifetime. He’s welcome back any time!”
