How well I recall the day I received my Gold Duke of Edinburgh’s Award. Five years of coping with numerous sporting injuries as I struggled to complete the last section, finally resorting to the most gentlemanly game I could find – Real Tennis. Then, on the great day itself in June 1986, I arrived at St. James’s Palace along with another 749 relieved and excited recipients. At long last, standing in the Throne Room, my father finally gave me the certificate that proved I had done it, I had got the Gold Award. HRH The Earl of Wessex KG GCVO
