Sir Ringo As Beatles' Legend Knighted By Prince William

Sir Ringo As Beatles' Legend Knighted By Prince William

The Beatles' Richard Starkey, better known as Ringo Starr, is now Sir Ringo. "It's new and I don't know how you use it properly", he explained, before addressing reporter and joking, "But I expect you to use it".

The 77-year-old from Liverpool and based in Los Angeles, was honoured for his services to music in Queen Elizabeth's New Year's honours list.

According to The Irish News, Starr also opened up in regards to the fact that he's joined Paul McCartney as the only other former Beatle to have been knighted.

He was conferred a knighthood at Buckingham Palace, by Prince William, the Duke of Cambridge. "But I think it's an honour", said the drummer after the ceremony yesterday.

While Koum stayed with Mark, Acton reportedly left the company to start his own company called Signal. Five years later, Facebook acquired WhatsApp, a popular messaging app, for $ 19 billion .

When The Beatles received their MBEs in October 1965, the occasion was not without controversy.

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

Paul took to Twitter late a year ago to congratulate Ringo - whose real name is Richard Starkey - following the news he would be knighted. Ringo Starr is a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee both individually and as a member of the Beatles. He did, however, mention that Sir Paul had given him a useful, simple piece of advice for the knighting ceremony: "Keep smiling". 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.
