Roberto de Ocampo Honored by Queen Elizabeth

Congratulations to Dr. Roberto de Ocampo for receiving an honorary OBE (Order of the British Empire) medal from Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II! The British ambassador to the Philippines, Stephen Lillie, gave him the medal for his significant contribution to the development of UK-Philippines relations for over more than 40 years. Mr. Ocampo is now an honorary Officer of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire.

That's Mr. Ocampo sitting on the floor with the boys! :D

Libera fans know Mr. Ocampo as the man who brought Libera to the Philippines for concerts in October 2009, April 2010 and October 2011. He also helped with the Singapore April 2012 concerts.
