Paul McCartney’s Knighthood Elevated By The Queen
Paul McCartney is now one better than a knight. Queen Elizabeth II just elevated the singer’s knighthood, giving him Companion of Honour award for services to music.
"I'm very happy about this huge honor,” Sir Paul says, “and with the news coming on my birthday weekend and Father's Day it makes it colossal!"
“Harry Potter” author J.K. Rowling also received the Companion honor this year, with both artists joining previous honorees Stephen Hawking, Ian McKellen and Judi Dench.
