To begin with, in 1997, Paul McCartney received his knighthood. However, today we see that Ringo Starr receives a knighthood. So, after 21 years of waiting, Ringo has now received his honour as well. Of course, from now on we must now use his full title, Sir Ringo Starr. Of course, his real name is Sir Richard Starkey!
Better late than never, at the age of 77, Ringo Starr attended Buckingham Palace with his wife, Barbara Bach. There he then became a knight after a ceremony with Prince William. Due to his services to music, he receives the award and says, “It means a lot actually. It means recognition for the things we’ve done. I was really pleased to accept this. I’ll be wearing it at breakfast.”
In short, Ringo heard the news about his honour months ago in the Queen’s New Year’s honours list.
