Queen guitarist Brian May was knighted by King Charles in London’s Buckingham Palace on March 14th.
According to Ultimate Classic Rock, May received the honor for his contributions to music and his charity work.
5 News has reported that following the ceremony, May spoke on receiving the honor from King Charles and said, “We’ve had various conversations over the years and I like to feel that we have a kind of friendship. I have enormous respect for him. I think he’s been through some very difficult times and always behaved with incredible grace and dignity.”
The British government announced at the end of last year that May would be the recipient of the honor.
