Marcus Setchell was dubbed Sir Marcus a Knight Commander of the Royal Victorian Order during a Tuesday ceremony at Buckingham Palace, an investiture ceremony usually performed by the queen -- but William was there to do the honors instead.
"Well of course it's a great honor and it's very nice that I was able to serve her for 24 years and that the culmination of it was that Prince George should be born," Setchell said.
The doctor chatted with the Duke of Cambridge during the ceremony, and William reportedly divulged that his son, the third in line to the British throne, was a "bouncing baby."
Setchell had previously described George's birth as a "lovely experience," and has delivered numerous royal babies, including Sophie, the Countess of Wessex's two children, James, Viscount Severn, 6, and Lady Louise Windsor, 10, according to Us magazine.
Setchell delayed his retirement to oversee Prince George's birth, and Catherine attended his retirement luncheon earlier this month.
