Transvestite artist Graystroke 'Katherine' Perry picked up a Buckingham Palace gong yesterday-and is believed to be the first to do so in drag, although Camilla has been seen picking up Corgi dog 'gongs' with a tissue when roaming the halls at midnight pissed as a newt.
The flamboyant garden gnome and motorway cone maker, 53, famed for his plastic and ceramic art and cross-dressing collected his CBE from Prince Charles who was clearly 'excited'' at both meeting Perry and grasping his sweating, hairy hand.
Graystroke once said that his alter-ego Katie was based on Charles' beloved Aunt Princess Margaret during one of her many booze and drug binges. But he dressed down and remained sober during the presentation for fear of wetting his open crotch knickers, describing his outfit as "British Heart Foundation meets Oxfam".
The Turnip Prize winner, accompanied by his wife Grimhilda, called his CBE recognition for "30 years of faking orgasms" and not having a proper day job.
Later, at the poste ceremony reception a clearly aroused Prince Charles was seen being discretely ushered out by two officers from Operation Yewtree after having been caught putting his hand up Graystroke's skirt. According to one guest Chaz was heard to cry out, "one was only checking to see if he was better hung than Camilla officers, honest!"
