What do you think would happen? I think Brian and Roger would accept them. I think Freddie would have turned it down, but make sure it was officially announced that he had been offered one, and Deaky would decline without leaving his house or making it public knowledge.


This can't end well.

These guys are a class act. They would not only show appropriate respect and accept the bestowal of Knighthood, but they would also feel honored. Brian in particular has always shown utmost respect to the queen, so wondering if he would accept is a bit of an insult to Brian, as it would be to the queen. imo.

he can consider himself a "total norweigian" but without a passport it counts for f-all

- (did he have a british one?) he'd never get a knighthood

I've just had a thought.

Since it is the monarchy who knight people, surely that means anyone from the Commonwealth can receive knighthoods?

i think freddie was a british citzen, as where his parents, part of the 'empire' maybe but when they came to uk to live, they must have been given citizenship. his father was a diplomat i understand

Wikipedia:

"In the Queen's birthday honours list of 2005, he [Brian May] was made a Commander of the Order of the British Empire "for services to the music industry"."

So he's sort of Knighted already...


Queen rocks!

Freddie was British, just because he was born out of Britain territory doesn't mean he's not. Because Britain gives citizenship upon parents not land.
