Eleven-times Paralympic gold medallist Sarah Storey has described being made a Dame as a "pinch yourself moment".
After receiving the award from Prince Charles at Buckingham Palace today, the 35 year old said. "It's amazing. It's just so hard to put into words, the ceremony and the protocol and the whole elegance of it is just absolutely amazing".
Swimmer Ellie Simmonds was awarded an OBE for services to Paralympic sport. The 18 year old said although she felt nervous before the event, it was "amazing" to be honoured.
Rower Kat Copeland, 22, and taekwondo star Jade Jones, 20, were awarded MBEs at the ceremony.
Jones said, "It was a really proud moment. Prince Charles was really nice and easy to chat with. He was saying that he really enjoyed the Olympics and wished me good luck for the future".
