Booker Prize-winning author Salman Rushdie has collected his royal Companion of Honour award at an investiture ceremony at Windsor Castle in south-east England, nearly a year after it was conferred to him by the late Queen Elizabeth II in June last year.

Mumbai-born Rushdie received the honour from Anne, the Princess Royal – the sister of King Charles III, on Tuesday, days after he was honoured at his first in-person public appearance in New York since being stabbed and severely wounded in a knife attack at a literary event in New York last year.

Rushdie, 75, received the PEN Centenary Courage Award at the 2023 Literary Gala at the American Museum of Natural History in Manhattan
