On Friday, King Charles III granted a group of royal decorations, which are usually bestowed on the occasion of the New Year, to about 1,000 personalities, most notably the guitarist in the “Queen” band Brian May.
In 2002, May played the national anthem “God Save the Queen” on the roof of Buckingham Palace to mark the fiftieth anniversary of Elizabeth II’s accession to the British throne. In 2005, the Queen awarded him a knighthood.
During the past year, May played on the occasion of the seventieth anniversary of the Queen’s accession to the throne in June, and won a new medal in appreciation of his “works in the field of music and his charitable giving.”
The 75-year-old musician, an astrophysicist and animal rights activist, confirmed that he had obtained the rank of “Juvenile Knight” (Nate Bachler), as a kind of mandate to do the things expected of the recipient of this title, which is “the struggle for justice and the delivery of the voices of all the weak.” ».
On the other hand, artist Grayson Perry, winner of the prestigious Turner Prize in 2003, was awarded the rank of Knight, while fashion designer Mary Quant, who is credited with spreading the mini-skirt fashion, received the Medal of Honor.
The 92-year-old fashion designer was awarded the title of “Lady” in the British Honor in 1966, and in 2015 she received a new honor.
In total, 1,107 people were rewarded, including 548 women, in a list signed for the first time by King Charles III.
