Was just browsing wikipedia and noticed it says he was made "Honorary Knight Commander of The Most Excellent Order of the British Empire" in 2013. Can't see any media reports from that time but he is listed here (http://www.leighrayment.com/knights/knightshon.htm) along with a few other members of the Al Nahyan family. Anyway thought it was interesting but strange how it's seemingly gone under the radar. It does show the close links he has with the UK and can only be good for the club. Was it ever mentioned on here? Couldn't find anything from a search hence starting this thread.
