Essex artist Grayson Perry will be awarded a CBE by the Prince of Wales today.
The potter who regularly appears dressed as his female alter-ego Claire, is being recognised for services to contemporary art.
The Turner Prize winning Perry, grew up in Chelmsford, Essex, and made his name with his hand-crafted pottery which is often illustrated with disturbing scenes.
The judges who awarded him the Turner Prize in 2003 said he had "subverted the craft form of ceramics".
