“I would never, ever turn down the Royal family. I grew up in the UK and am a massive fan of them. It is very surreal when you grew up watching the news like everyone else, hearing your name in the House of Lords or the House of Commons or in Parliament.” said Hamilton.

“As far as I am aware, there are a lot of talks and I have not really thought a lot about it, but it would be an incredible honor. There is no greater honor that your country recognizing you and honoring you with such an award.” said the 7-time world champion.
