Sir Elton John to receive top honour by Prince Charles

Icon, Sir Elton John will be awarded a new prestigious honour for the acknowledgement of his six-decade career and his campaigning work towards Aids.

The worldwide known musician will be made a member of the Order of the Companions of Honour by Prince Charles at a Windsor Castle investiture ceremony.

The 74-year-old singer-songwriter was knighted for services to music and charity back in 1998 and has sold over 300 million records across his six-decade career.

Sir Elton has also dedicated his life to charity including his own Elton John Aids Foundation and has been lobbying for action on HIV/Aids for nearly 40 years.

The Order of the Companions of Honour was established back in 1917 by King George V for recognition of service of national importance.

The honour is quite rare to receive with fellow broadcasters including Sir David Attenborough, actress Dame ,.
