Prince William recognized royal obstetrician Marcus Setchell this week, bestowing the honor of knight on the doctor who delivered the royal baby over the summer.
Setchell, who has served as Queen Elizabeth's gynecologist since 1990, received the accolade Tuesday at a ceremony at Buckingham Palace, Us Weekly reported
. Besides tending to Prince George in July, Setchell has also treated Sophie, Countess of Wessex, and delivered her two children.
A source told Us Weekly that Prince William, the Duke of Cambridge, "had a lively chat with Sir Marcus after knighting him with the ceremonial sword."

"Well of course it's a great honor and it's very nice that I was able to serve [the queen] for 24 years and that the culmination of it was that Prince George should be born," Setchell said after the ceremony, according to the Daily Mail.
"There are sometimes things where people are having difficulty getting pregnant or having problems gynecologically but a great part of the job is thoroughly joyful and it's just a wonderful job to have done," he said. "I think even after doing this job for 40 years every birth is exciting, moving, and lovely."
Rumors have been swirling in the tabloids for weeks that Prince William and wife Kate Middleton are expecting another child, but the Duke made it clear Monday that the stories are not true.
"Maybe one day," he reportedly told a soldier
while visiting the Irish Guards at a military base in the southern English town of Aldershot for St. Patrick's Day. "One's enough at the moment."
