King Charles Knights Queen!


King Charles Knights Queen! See Brian May Receive His Honor at Buckingham Palace

Story by Janine Henni

It was an especially regal meeting when King Charles knighted Queen guitarist Brian May!

On Tuesday, the King, 74, made the legendary rocker, 75, a Knight Bachelor during an investiture ceremony at Buckingham Palace. May was awarded the honor for his services to music and charity.

"No words," he wrote in an Instagram tribute, posting a photo of himself smiling with pride as King Charles laid a sword on his shoulder.

The iconic rocker was among the 1,100 individuals celebrated in the 2023 New Year Honours List, King Charles' first New Year Honours list as monarch. Buckingham Palace announced the news in December 2022, and May voiced his joy in an interview that followed.

"Maybe a few more people will listen to me than would otherwise, you know, if it's Sir Brian on the phone," he told the Associated Press of having "a little bit more clout."

In addition to his musical accomplishments, May had advocated against badger culling and fox hunting through his animal welfare group Save Me, established in 2010 and named after the Queen song.


With all the painful stories I have posted lately, I wanted to post something a bit more light-hearted. It's not often that a King knights a Queen. If this is triggering to anyone, please use the 'report to moderator' option and we'll take it down.

Love always -- Jessica Rose
