Wiley picked up his MBE in the freezing cold and the photos are hilarious
Wiley, winter and William.
As part of the 2018 honours list, The Godfather of grime, Wiley, today visited Buckingham Palace and was appointed Member of the Order of the British Empire (MBE) for his services to music.
Joining Marc Almond and former editor-in-chief of British Vogue, Alexandra Shulman, who respectively received an OBE and CBE, all of the recipients were given their awards by the Duke of Cambridge.
Suited and booted, the "Wot Do U Call It?" hitmaker was obviously elated with the fact that he was receiving the prestigious honour but the grin on his face was more a grimace than anything else due to the insanely cold weather - at least he was wearing gloves.
