Marcus Rashford has been officially awarded his MBE by Prince William in a ceremony at Windsor Castle on Tuesday 9 November.
The Manchester United and England forward successfully campaigned vulnerable children to receive free meals during the coronavirus pandemic.
Rashford was driven to ensure no child went hungry as the world locked down and people stayed home.
The 24-year-old often cites his own working-class upbringing as the drive behind his campaigning.
Rashford plans to continue his work beyond his MBE to “give children the things I didn’t have when I was a kid”, according to the BBC.
And like the awards before it, this one is homeward bound to his mothers.
“All the awards I’ve achieved for my charitable work have all gone to her [his mum] and this one will join them as well,” he said.
In October, Rashford also received an honorary doctorate from the University of Manchester as a result of his work.
He received a special mention at the 2020 Sports Personality of the Year awards in recognition of his work off the pitch too.
