Prince William Knights Beatles Rocker Ringo Starr

Ringo Starr Finally Receives Knighthood

Prince William bestowed the honor to the legendary Beatles drummer during the Investiture ceremony at Buckingham Palace on Tuesday.

On December 26th, we noted how it had been reported that Ringo Starr was set to be knighted as part of Queen Elizabeth II's New Year's Honours, which also included the likes of Bee Gees founder Robin Gibb.

Congrats to Sir Ringo, even if he's not yet used to the new title! "It's new and I don't know how you use it properly", he said, according to the BBC.

But Starr (77), who received the honour under his real name Richard Starkey, for services to music, insisted it had come as a complete surprise. Starr, who posed for the cameras outside the Palace while giving his signature peace sign salute, received the knighthood 21 years after fellow band-member, Paul McCartney, received his.

"I was a bit shaky today on my own".

Starr also joked that he plans to wear the medal at breakfast, reports the BBC.

Evidently, The Beatles' 1965 honor was a somewhat scandalous event in its day.

Ringo joined McCartney, George Harrison and John Lennon in the Beatles as a replacement drummer for Pete Best in 1962 and occasionally sang lead vocals, notably on Yellow Submarine and With a Little Help from my Friends.

"Last week, Paul and I had dinner in LA together and we were talking about Liverpool to here".

The other surviving Beatle, Paul McCartney, was knighted in 1997.
