Beatles drummer Ringo Starr had a busy day: he was appointed a Knight Commander o

f the Order of the British Empire in a ceremony at Londons Buckingham Palace. The honor was bestowed upon the

famous musician, real name Richard Starkey, by none other than expecting father Prince William in an event called an investiture. (The knighthood was announced back in December. The grounds? Services to music.)  This is not the first time Ringo has had a brush w

ith royalty; the whole Beatles crew were introduced to the Queen back in 1965, when they received all became Members of the British Order, called an MBE. Starr, who is one of two remai

ning members of the Beatles, was beat to the knighthood punch by band

mate Paul McCartney, who received the titl

e Sir in 1997. They are the only two Beatles to be knighted; George

Harrison and John Lennon passed away in 2001 and 1980, respectively. But just because the honor is coming late doesnt mean Ringo isnt appreciating it fully. When asked by the BBC about his plans for the medal that goes along with the title, Ringo had the best answer. Ill be

wearing it at breakfast, he joked to reporters. As for whether

hell want people to call him Sir Ringo from now on? He hasnt com新版跑狗每期自动更新 e to a decision yet on that front but he fully expects respect. I expect you to use it, he told a reporter.   Yep, just another day in the life filled with peace, love and royal accolades.
