Prince Harry has been knighted by his grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II.

WOAH. He's an actual knight. This sort of thing just doesn't seem like it could happen in real life, except for on TV.

The 89-year-old monarch made Harry a Knight Commander of the Royal Victorian Order (KCVO) in a private ceremony, a spokesperson for Kensington Palace confirmed.

The 30-year-old royal received the honour - which was founded in April 1896 by Queen Victoria - for his "services to the sovereign" and the UK.

Congrats Hazza! The news was broken on the official Kensington Palace Twitter account.

    @KensingtonRoyal tweeted: "The Queen has appointed Prince Harry to be a Knight Commander of the Royal Victorian Order #KCVO.

    "Awards in The Royal Victorian Order are made personally by The Queen for services to the Sovereign."

    The palace also shared a photo of Hazza's Royal Victorian Order Inisignia, captioning the picture: "Here's a photo of the #KCVO Insignia that The Queen presented to Prince Harry privately at #BuckinghamPalace today."

    Hazza is set to leave his position in the army - after a decade - later this year. The prince is also well known for his charitable work and for founding the Invictus Games, a sporting competition for injured servicemen and women.
