Mantel’s medal

Hilary Mantel, who’s won the Booker prize twice, is to receive the Bodley Award at the Oxford Literary Festival in March.

It’s better news for the author, after she came under fire for describing Kate Middleton as a ‘mannequin’ with ‘a plastic smile’ earlier this month.

The Prime Minister described these comments as ‘completely misguided’ but some believe her quotes were taken out of context.
