TMZ reports that Ringo Starr was knighted this morning by Prince William at Buckingham Palace. He is the second (and last) Beatle to get the honor, 21 years after Sir Paul McCartney in 1997. John Lennon and George Harrison can’t be knighted because the rules state honorees have to be living.

Other rock stars to get the honor include Elton John, Rod Stewart and Mick Jagger. Bono received an honorary knighthood.
