Whitby’s Anne Hornigold visited Buckingham Palace to receive her Member of the Order of the British Empire (MBE) medal from Prince William, Duke of Cambridge.

“It was a superb day for me and my family,” said Anne, chief executive of Whitby Fishing school.

She attended with husband Tony, and her sons, Thomas and Christopher.

“It was a wonderful occasion with 50 recipients and their guests,” she added.

Prince William remarked that Anne was “a very determined woman” after he chatted with her about the fishing school.
