Rudolph Walker awarded CBE

Rudolph Walker was awarded the honour in recognition of his services to drama and charity at St James’ Palace by the Prince of Wales, in June 2021 – the first major investiture ceremony since the coronavirus outbreak.

CBE stands for Commander of the Order of the British Empire and it is the highest-ranking British Empire award.

Walker claimed that he never imagined he would receive the honour stating:

“My message to all the youngsters is if I can do it, so can they. Things are tough but everything is achievable…”

He continued.

“Who would have thought that when I set sail for the shores of the UK in 1960 that I’d be at St James’s Palace receiving an award.”

“Not in my wildest dreams.”

“It sends a message to the people in the UK but also young people in the Caribbean…”
