Speaking after the ceremony at Buckingham Palace, Sarah Lewis said, "The Investiture Ceremony is an extraordinary and uniquely British occasion, following century old traditions. To receive the honour from Her Majesty the Queen was particularly special and she commented on the popularity of skiing as a sport."
