Queen's lead guitarist Brian May received his knighthood from King Charles on March 15th at Buckingham palace.
Sir Brian, 75 was recognised for his incredible work not just in his music, but also in his charity work and animal rights activism.
He will now be recognised as Sir Brian following the investiture ceremony.
He attended the event with his wife, Anita Dobson.
"I am very happy, smiling from ear to ear, particularly because it was the King, which means a lot," he said after the ceremony ended.
"We've had a certain amount of contact over the years and we're of an age, so I have a strong feeling for him and it was a lovely moment."
They also joked:
WE DISCUSSED THE FACT THAT WE ARE OF AN AGE AND HE WAS WONDERING IF MY KNEES WERE HOLDING OUT FOR THE KNEELING PART OF THE CEREMONY. I SAID, 'YES, JUST ABOUT'
"To receive this award I suppose feels like getting approval, like when you get a gold star at school - perhaps you've done something and you know what you've achieved and if you get that seal of approbation from above, then it's a very good feeling, it's very special."
The official Queen page shared a photo from his knighthood ceremony to congratulate him.
"Arise Sir Brian May
Brian's investiture as a Knight of The Realm took place today at Buckingham Palace. The knighthood was presented to Brian by His Royal Highness, King Charles. Many congratulations, Sir Brian!"
When the artist found out that he is on this year's 'honour list', he expressed how happy and grateful he was.
"I'm happy and grateful to receive this honour. I will regard the knighthood not so much as a reward, but more as a charge – a commission - for me to continue to fight for justice - to be a voice for those who have no voice," he told
"I will endeavour to be worthy - to be that Knight in Shining Armour.”
