Transport minister Sadiq Khan made a bit of history this evening as he was sworn in as a member of the Privy Council.
Sadiq became the first ever Muslim to hold the office of Privy Counsellor after the ceremony at Buckingham Palace.
He took along his own copy of the Koran for the oath. The minister then kindly left his copy for the Palace for any future ceremonies by fellow Muslims.
He tells me: "It's hugely important that Muslims in the UK recognise that we are fully accepted at the highest levels of society and that there is no conflict between being a Muslim and swearing allegiance to the Queen.
"I want youngsters in Bradford, Burnley, Tower Hamlets to see that the preachers of hate - who say you can't be Muslim and British - are utterly wrong. I'm very, very proud to be a Privy Counsellor to Her Majesty."
Although the Privy Council has been in existence since Norman times, the first professing Jew to be a member was Sir George Jessel in the 1870s.
As a minister of State, Khan is already the most senior Muslim to have held Government office. Last month, he became the first Western minister to visit Mecca and Medina.
Here's a pic of the last time Sadiq got close to the Queen - during the Silver Jubilee in 1977. Nice crown.
