The Queen giveth and the Queen taketh away

Former featherweight champion Naseem Hamed, recently released from prison after serving four months of his 15 month sentence for reckless driving—Prince was driving his Benz upwards of 90 mph on the wrong side of the road when he crashed head-on into a poor sap behind the wheel of a Volkswagen—has just been stripped by the Queen of his MBE, an honor bestowed on the boxer by HRH when the Prince was riding high.

Naseem Hamed According to the London Gazette, "The Queen has directed that the appointment of Naseem Hamed to be a Member of the Civil Division of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire, dated 31 December 1998, shall be cancelled and annulled and that his name shall be erased from the Register of the said Order."

Hamed's former trainer, Brendan Ingle, told the Mirror that Hamed’s losing the MBE is a “terrible blow… This will really upset him. He was delighted at receiving the award from the Queen. Afterwards he was so proud he used to show it to everyone.

“It is really sad the way things have turned out. He was a fantastic champion." Read more at the BLOG
