Actor Daniel Craig has received the same honour as awarded his character James Bond 007 as he was honoured at Windsor Castle for services to film and theatre.
The James Bond actor attended primary school in Hoylake and he also attended Hilbre High School in West Kirby. Upon finishing his compulsory secondary school education at the age of 16, he attended Calday Grange Grammar School as a sixth-form student. He played rugby union for Hoylake RFC and still helps them with fundraising events.
Daniel Craig was made a Companion of the Order of St Michael and St George – the same honour held by Ian Fleming’s famous character – by the Princess Royal.
While in character as James Bond, he made a famous appearance alongside the Queen in a sketch as a part of the 2012 London Olympic Games opening ceremony.
The actor starred in five Bond films, first appearing in Casino Royale in 2006 and ending his run with No Time To Die in 2021.
