Prince William hosted his first ever Investiture ceremony at Buckingham Palace earlier today, where he awarded some of the UK's finest with medals for their accomplishments in their respective fields!
Andy Murray was on the list of recipients and was given an Officer of the Order of the British Empire medal from the Duke of Cambridge!
But the tennis superstar actually came this close to missing his brush with royalty completely due to an ill-timed drug test!
Right when he was supposed to be making his way to Buckingham Palace, Andy took to Twitter and sent out a message that read:

MASSIVE congratulations are in order for Stella McCartney, who just received an OBE from Queen Elizabeth II on Tuesday.
What an honor!
The designer attended the Investiture Ceremony at Buckingham Palace with husband Alasdhair Willis and looked phenomenal in a navy skirt suit of her own design and cobalt blue pumps.
Kind of similar to Kate Winslet's Queen-meeting outfit from last year!
An embellished and veiled headpiece gave her the most regal air, and we're sure the Queen appreciated it!
Congrats, Stella! You SO deserve it!

HEEEYYYYYY! CONGRATS, FONZ!
For all of Henry Winkler's work touring schools in the U.K., talking to children about dyslexia, doing his best in the effort to prevent bullying, and writing children's books on the subject, the Queen has rewarded him.
Through appointment, Henry is now an honorary OBE at the British embassy in Washington D.C.!
The Fonz was super surprised and, as aways, graciously humble with the honor. He even snapped a picture of the pin to tweet!
Aww, Fonz, way to be one of the best guys ever. Don't ever go away, okay??

Gorgeous Miranda Kerr isn't afraid to warn future mothers just how painful labor is!
When the supermodel gave birth to her son, Flyyn, the pain was so excruciating, she claims she had an out of body experience!
She tells reporters:
I actually thought I was going to die at one point and left my body. I was looking down on myself, the pain was so intense. I kept thinking, 'How do women do this?' But if other women have done this, I can do it too. I was determined.
Ouch! Determination indeed! The thought of it just makes us cringe.
Good thing husband and baby-daddy, Orlando Bloom, was there to hold her hand!
That was probably more adventurous than any pirate mission could ever be!
