Grayson Perry receives his CBE as his alter-ego, Claire

Grayson Perry was last week awarded a CBE at Buckingham Palace and chose to receive the title, bestowed by Prince Charles, dressed in a self-proclaimed ”Italian mother of the bride outfit”.  ”When I got the call (about the CBE) my first thought was what am I going to wear” he said. ”I’m not going to compromise my identity as Britain’s pre-eminent transvestite. I googled to see what people wore and went for the sexier end.”  It seems that Buckingham Palace were unphased by the wardrobe choice, with a Palace spokesperson stating that Perry’s attire was ”entirely appropriate”.  You can see more happy snaps of Perry receiving his award here.

    I think Grayson Perry is just fabulous. His Reith Lectures last year were so good, I made my teenage son listen to them.
