The Duke of Cambridge presented former ASWAD frontman BRINSLEY FORDE with an MBE at Windsor Castle today.

Prince William also told the reggae musician he has a secret musical talent - playing the bass guitar.

FORDE said after the event: “I've just got a new bass player - you might know him as the Duke of Cambridge.”

“He said ‘I'm a bit good on the bass guitar’ so I'm thinking of signing him up, but he's got such a lot of other duties I don't know whether he'll have time to do it,” FORDE added.

BRINSLEY FORDE originally founded ASWAD in the mid 1970s and is now a solo artist, most recently releasing an album called Urban Jungle back in 2013.
