Lewis Hamilton may have been knighted this week, but it wasn't his first brush with the British Royal Family.

The seven-time Formula One World Champion was honoured by Prince Charles for his sporting achievements just days after missing out on a record eighth title.

Hamilton had been made an MBE in 2009, which led to a sit-down lunch with the Queen.

And he's had several encounters with Prince Harry, including in March 2020 at the opening of the Silverstone Experience.

But it was a touching Meghan Markle moment that left the 36-year-old with a "smile of his face the whole time" which would appear to be one of his favourite royal moments.

Hamilton was enamoured by the former actress' wedding, which he watched from afar but enjoyed as if he was alongside the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

He said: "I watched here at the weekend just with a smile on my face the whole time.

"It was great to see such a positive change. It was great to see how happy they both were. It was just a really proud day for the world and it's always great to see positivity and change.

Is Hamilton the greatest of all time after the latest F1 season? Let us know in the comments section.

"The fact you do have diversity in the Royal Family today is a huge thing, people probably don't realise how important that is.

"Even to see at the church you had a mixture with the ministers, in the music, in the choir, it was just really beautiful to see.

"So I just had the greatest weekend ever just sitting there watching, seeing talented people play music and seeing them speak and then just to see this power couple walk out.

"It was the greatest wedding I've ever seen – and I'm not big on weddings at all, I avoid them at all costs. But this was one, I wish I was actually in England to have seen it.

"Plus, England on a sunny day is just so beautiful with the castle and everything.

"It was pretty much a fairytale that every kid and adult today that's particularly not married dreams of having that kind of weekend."
