Get ready for Dr. Marcus' tongue twister new title: Knight Commander of the Royal Victorian Order. Or for short, Sir Marcus. "It was a precious, unforgettable moment when I held the future king of England," the newly knighted doctor explained after Prince George's birth. He even continued to say that royal baby's birth was the "pinnacle" of his career!
