Welsh singer Katherine Jenkins made a trip to Buckingham Palace in London on Friday (14Mar14) to pick up a special prize from Charles, Prince Of Wales.

The star was handed her Most Excellent Order of the British Empire (Obe) medal by the British royal at Queen Elizabeth Ii's residence in the U.K. capital and she kept her fans up to date by tweeting throughout the special day.

Jenkins posted a video filmed while she was in the car on the way to the ceremony, and she also added pictures of herself talking to Prince Charles and posing with a pair of royal guards while holding her Obe medal.

In a post on Twitter.com, she writes, "Incredibly humbled to receive my Obe today and to have my family there with me on this very special occasion."

Veteran British actress Lynda Bellingham was also among the stars honoured at the palace on Friday.
