Money Saving Expert Martin Lewis’s daughter pleaded with him to stand the Queen up and stay at home with her.

The two-year-old was addressing her father as he got ready to receive his OBE at Buckingham Palace today.

The journalist revealed the request from “Baby MSE” after being awarded his medal for services to consumer rights and charitable services.

Speaking after the ceremony, Lewis said: “I’m here with my family, which is nice – my wife, my dad and stepmother. But my little girl wasn’t very happy this morning.

“She said ‘Daddy, I need you. The Queen doesn’t need you, stay here, Daddy’.”

But unbeknown to the toddler, it was actually the Princess Royal who was handing out the honours, something Lewis was very pleased about.

He said: “It was very nice for me that it was the Princes Royal because we have met a number of times through Citizens Advice, which she is a patron of.

“It is quite nice to get it off someone you know, and it takes a little bit of the pressure off.”

Lewis said he was very proud of his OBE for, because it recognised the work that he is passionate about.

Before the ceremony, the founder of consumer website moneysavingexpert.com tweeted that he was feeling very emotional in light of the support he received on social media.

“I didn’t expect to be doing this, I am 42 and I have worked hard to do what I do. The reaction I got was just so nice and I felt very emotional on the back of that, and with people telling me stories of how I have helped them.”
