Sir Rod Stewart Was Knighted By Prince William at Buckingham Palace
Yesterday (Oct. 11) Sir Rod(erick) Stewart has been knighted by the Duke of Cambridge at Buckingham Palace.
The singer was rewarded in the Queen's birthday honours list in recognition of his services to music and charity.
Wearing tartan trousers, the singer said of meeting Prince William: "We talked about music and he said: 'It's great that you're still going', and I said: 'I have to - I've got eight children!'.
"He congratulated me on my long career - and I said how happy this made me. I just wish my mum and dad had been here to see it".
Absolutely mind-blowing. Deeply honoured to be Sir Roderick Stewart. - Rod xxx pic.twitter.com/KPBPlJ8D57— Rod Stewart (@rodstewart) October 11, 2016
