Legendary Poirot actor David Suchet knighted by Prince William

PROUD Poirot actor Sir David Suchet kneels to be knighted by Prince William yesterday.

The star, who played the moustachioed Belgian sleuth 70 times on ITV, missed December’s ceremony with Covid.

Sir David, 75, said that the honour was his “proudest moment”.

He said: “I’ve been knighted on stage and it doesn’t compare!

"And no camera is going to say, ‘Cut, let’s do a retake’.

"It's the most extraordinary feeling and it's very surreal."

Sir David added: "My OBE was with Her Majesty at Buckingham Palace, my CBE was was Prince Charles.

"And now my knighthood is with the Duke of Cambridge, so I've had Her Majesty the Queen and two future kings, which is very humbling indeed and totally unexpected."

Sir David, who was at Windsor Castle with wife Sheila Ferris, was recognised for his services to drama and charity.
