Ringo Starr Is Officially a Knight

Ringo Starr Is Officially a Knight

The Beatles' Richard Starkey, better known as Ringo Starr, is now Sir Ringo. "I was really pleased to accept this".

Patrick's Day celebration with Kate Middleton over the weekend, Prince William got back to business when he hosted the Investiture ceremony at Buckingham Palace on Tuesday. "It's an honor and a pleasure to be considered and acknowledged for my music and my charity work, both of which I love", Ringo said of the honor in December. The Beatles' MBEs sparked so much controversy that previous honorees returned their medals.

Starr was reminded that John Lennon reportedly said the group was so nervous about the award they went into the bathroom for a cigarette. The drummer was knighted in a ceremony in the United Kingdom. "It's new and I don't know how you use it properly".

The 77-year-old added he knew exactly what he'd do with his medal.

Of course, Ringo's knighting follow that of fellow Beatle Paul McCartney, who was given the honour in 1997.

Other people receiving honours at Tuesday's ceremony included former Scottish rugby player John "Ian" McLauchlan, authors Jilly Cooper and Michael Morpurgo, Welsh rugby player Sam Warburton and foster carer Anne Shaw.
