The senior royals were summoned by Her Majesty to hammer out a solution to Prince Harry and Meghan's desire to step back from their position as front-line royals and establish financial independence. She received the honor from Prince William at Buckingham Palace as part of the annual Queen's Birthday Honours.
Mr Duguid, who received the MBE for his outstanding services to deaf people and British Sign Language education, replied: "Thank you".
Among the people being awarded with an MBE was Alex Duguid, a sign language interpreter who has worked for famous TV shows such as Emmerdale and Coronation Street. "This so lovely and shows the respect William has for Sign Language". Alex Duguid MBE will be a familiar face to many Coronation Street and Emmerdale fans as he is the regular EDL interpreter to the audience of both soaps.
He is perhaps best known for a viral video clip in which he popped up on screen at the start of an episode at the exact time Liz mcDonald (Beverley Callard) was left startled - making it look like it was Alex who had given her the fright.
"He is an example of how profoundly deaf people can have an impact on their community, their peers and their country".
Alex Duguid has been a sign language interpreter for shows like Emmerdale and Coronation Street.
Prince William's comments came after Harry and Meghan's bombshell announcement shocked the world on January 6 when they announced they wanted to quit as senior royals. "Prince William will be an incredible King".
"My family and I are entirely supportive of Harry and Meghan's desire to create a new life as a young family".
Prince William returned to work yesterday after taking part to a key summit with the Queen, Prince Charles and Prince Harry on Monday.
"Harry and Meghan have made clear that they do not want to be reliant on public funds in their new lives", the Queen's statement added.
