Britain's Prince Charles bestowed a knighthood on Wednesday on Quentin Blake, whose scratchy drawings of Roald Dahl characters have made him one of the world's best-loved children's illustrators.

Collecting the honour at Buckingham Palace, 80-year-old Blake said the secret of his success was to imitate the facial expressions of his subjects, who include the characters of Dahl's "Matilda" and "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory".

"The thing is to draw it as though you're acting it at the time," he explained. "I do the expressions, which are very strange."
