Essex artist Grayson Perry has been made a CBE by the Prince of Wales and wore his "Italian mother of the bride" outfit for the occasion.

The flamboyant potter, famed for his ceramics depicting his darkest and most private feelings, said the award was recognition for 30 years of hard graft.

Perry wore a midnight blue dress and matching fitted jacket with a wide brimmed black-hat decorated with what looked like ostrich feathers.
