Each recipient is awarded a medal from members of the royal family, so naturally Rowling accepted the honor from Prince William. According to the Royal Family, "The Order of the Companions of Honor was founded in 1917 by George V and is given to those who have made a major contribution in their field." We can't think of anything better/sweeter than this.
