ALISON BOSHOFF: Suits Huw, Sir! Edwards, a veteran newsreader, has been voted a knighthood, September 22, 2022
ALISON BOSHOFF: Edwards may move away with more than the Beeb and his followers' good wishes, as consideration is being given to the honor of his decades of journalism. Huw is expected to be given a 'K' by King Charles in the New Year's Honours, and it will surely be a major move. The Welshman posted a distinctly vain photograph of himself on Instagram on Monday evening: in the BBC studio looking out at Buckingham Palace after the crowds had passed, he shared a photo of himself. 'It's been a privilege,' he said. My coworkers are the best in the world. 'Thanks for all the kind messages.' Edwards' record on the BBC is impressive. He has been leading royal coverage from the Diamond and Platinum jubilees to Princes William and Harry's weddings.
