I was actually awarded the status in July last year, but the ceremony is an annual event, so we had to wait a while before going through all the pomp and ceremony of the service.
The ceremony was held in the Merchant Taylor's Hall, which dates back to as early as 1347. The King's Gallery gets its name after King James I, who used it as a private dining space in 1607.
This is probably the last award I am likely to get in my working life, but it was lovely that my D Mike was there with me, and responsible for taking these photographs. We did have one taken together, but I guess we will have to wait for that one to arrive in the post.
