Queen’s honours for showbiz

Dec 29, 2000 by Ian Evans

Several popular entertainment figures received special attention in Queen Elizabeth II’s New Year’s Honour List.

British citizen Patrick Stewart is now a member of the Order of the British Empire. Irish citizen and former Goon Show star Spike Milligan is now an honorary knight as is American director Steven Spielberg. Though Spike and Steven can’t use the “Sir”, they can add KBE after their names.

Liz, those of us at Digital Hit are still waiting.
