Queen guitarist Brian May was knighted by King Charles at Buckingham Palace yesterday (March 14).
May was included in the 2023 New Year’s Honours list, both for his work in music and his history as an animal rights activist.
Sharing a photo of himself being knighted, May simply wrote: “No words! Bri”.
Discussing the honour, May told BBC News: “This is a kind of licence, a kind of commission to carry on doing what I’m doing, and it gives me a bit more power to my elbow. So I’m very happy about that.”
