O King Charles III knighted Queen’s guitarist Brian May, in a special ceremony at Buckingham Palace. He is the first member of the legendary band to receive this honor for his long-time contribution to music and philanthropy.
“There are no words,” the legendary guitarist wrote in an Instagram post, posting a photo of the moment he was knighted with Charles’ signature gesture of resting the royal sword on his shoulders.
