Sara Davies MBE takes a memorable trip to Buckingham Palace

Entrepreneur and television personality Sara Davies was invited to London for a very special reason. She was going to Buckingham Palace to receive an MBE for her services to the economy, as part of the New Year’s Honours List 2016.

It was a really monumental occasion for her whole family, so she treated them to First Class tickets from Darlington destined for London King’s Cross.

His Royal Highness, Prince William presented her with the MBE, in a regal ceremony which was one of the proudest moments of Sara’s life. However, once the excitement of the event was over, Sara knew she had another even more important job ahead of her – as she was 37 weeks pregnant at the time. She boarded the train back up north, this time stopping at Durham to go straight to hospital with her husband to give birth to her second child.
