‘Grateful,’ the Queen’s personal physician, was knighted in a private ceremony.

In a private investiture ceremony at Windsor Castle, QUEEN ELIZABETH crowned her own doctor, Sir Huw Thomas.

Professor Sir Huw Thomas has been a royal household physician since 2005, and in 2014 he was named head of the medical household and physician to the Queen.

The monarch is said to have hosted a small investiture ceremony for her physician after being hospitalized in October and having to cancel several royal engagements.

In the New Year Honours for 2021, Sir Huw Thomas, 63, was named Knight Commander of the Royal Victorian Order (KCVO), but he had not yet been properly invested.

Her Majesty’s Royal Victorian Order is a personal gift for service to the Royal Family.

Sir Thomas shared key moments in the Royal Family’s life as a member of the support staff when Kate Middleton gave birth to Prince Louis on April 23, 2018.

On April 9 of this year, he certified Prince Philip’s death cause.

Sir Huw is a professor of gastrointestinal genetics at Imperial College London’s department of surgery and cancer.

As the head of the royal medical household, he was undoubtedly involved in the medical guidelines that the Queen received recently.

HM has been advised to rest and participate in royal engagements remotely following a health scare on October 20, when she was admitted to the private King Edward VII’s hospital in central London for “preliminary investigations.”

She missed the annual Remembrance Sunday ceremony at the Cenotaph due to a back sprain.

The monarch herself presided over the small investiture, which was held in Windsor Castle with Lady Thomas, Sir Huw Thomas’ wife, in attendance.

When Sir Thomas spoke to Imperial College in February 2021, he said his royal work had been a “busy couple of years,” adding that he was “very grateful to have been recognized for my service to date.”

“I’ve been with the Royal Medical Household for 15 years, and the last seven have been as Head of the Medical Household,” he explained.

“To be the Queen’s Physician is a great honor,” he added.

“It’s a completely different role, but it’s incredibly enjoyable and rewarding.”
