Twiggy becomes Dame Commander of 2019 after receiving investiture | ITV News

Sixties fashion star Dame Twiggy has spoken about the “amazing” experience of being made a Dame Commander by the Prince of Wales who told her: “About time you got this.”

The supermodel, who is now a grandmother of three, said her 16-year-old self would probably “giggle” at the thought of receiving the honour.

Brought up in Neasden, north-west London, her success story started when she was plucked from obscurity when aged just 16 and became a global celebrity overnight.
