Prince William knights David Adjaye


The Duke of Cambridge, Prince William, has knighted the world renowned architect of Ghanaian origin David Adjaye. This was a part of the Queen’s biannual honours programme, at an official Investiture at the Buckingham Palace.


David’s knighthood comes after two other royal awards that he has already received: the 2016 Queen’s Birth Honours and an Officer of the Order of the British Empire (OBE) in 2007.

David now joins a few architects who have been knighted by the British royal family; among them Norman Foster (1990), Richard Rodgers (1991) and David Chipperfield (2010).

“I am deeply honoured and delighted to have received a knighthood for my contribution to architecture, and absolutely thrilled to be recognized for a role that I consider a pleasure to be able to undertake. I would like to thank Her Majesty the Queen for this incredible privilege, which I see as a celebration of the potential architecture has to effect positive change,” Sir David said after the ceremony.
