"Congratulations Alex": Duke of Cambridge used British Sign Language to congratulate ITV's Alex Duguid MBE

"Congratulations Alex", a wonderful and heartwarming gesture from the Duke of Cambridge as he awarded an MBE to Alex Duguid, who works here at ITV Tyne Tees with the SignPost team.

Prince William presented Alex with the honour at Buckingham Palace, using British Sign Language.

Alex was awarded for services to deaf people and British Sign Language education.

Back in June, Alex said he wasn't expecting to receive such a letter in the post.
