Dying of colon cancer, Deborah James was visited by Prince William and personally presented her with the title of Dame. They chatted sweetly and had champagne tea.

"It was a special day for my whole family," said an enthusiastic Deborah.

The title of Dame was bestowed on James after she raised £4 million for cancer research in a matter of days (by today, it's already £5 million). Deborah was diagnosed with colon cancer in 2016, but over the years treatment hasn't worked, she was moved to a home hospice.

After the announcement, the 40-year-old TV host's foundation literally exploded with donations, and Prince William and his wife were among the celebrities who made a major donation, Metro writes.
