        That's wonderful news! Happy for Ringo   Wonder if he'll want to be referred to as Sir Ringo or Sir Richard Starkey?  Fans will probably call him both.   Barbara will be Lady Starkey now of course.

          Why did they keep writing 2004? Paul was knighted in 1997!

          Congrats to Ringo! He will be Sir Richard Starkey (just like Mick is Sir Michael Jagger)

                      It's time to knight Pete Best as well. No Pete Best, no Beatles.

                        I never thought Richy would be knighted. I am ecstatic. I wonder when the ceremony will be? He shall have to get a new  cool outfit to wear for the big day. One is allowed 3 guests, I believe. Perhaps his three children?Meanwhile I am so very very happy☮️❤️

                          Paul was allowed 4 guests and Linda was sick anyway and wanted the 4 kids to go.
