Mete Coban is feeling proud.
Yesterday was my award ceremony, where I received my MBE from HRH Prince Charles at St James Palace. My grandad would have been so proud to see the contributions both his son and grandson have made to the United Kingdom and for those achievements to be recognised by the future King.
