A GUERNSEY doctor was presented with an MBE yesterday by Prince William.
Tumaini Fund founder Susan Wilson, 56, travelled to Buckingham Palace to receive the honour, which she earned for her service to Aids orphans in Tanzania.

It represented an extension of his public duties after he left the Royal Air Force last month.
Others honoured yesterday were Wimbledon champion Andy Murray, who was presented with an OBE, and Vicar of Dibley producer Jon Plowman, who was also made an OBE by the prince.
Broadcaster Aled Jones was made an MBE for services to music, broadcasting and charity.
Dr Wilson, who is a GP at Queen’s Road Medical Practice, said her MBE honoured everyone involved in the Tumaini Fund, including the orphans in the region of Kagera, and the people of Guernsey.
The charity was set up 10 years ago is supporting 25,000 children.
