That’s Sir Ringo to you.

Legendary drummer Ringo Starr has joined fellow Beatle Paul McCartney as an official British knight.

Starr was knighted by the Duke of Cambridge, AKA Prince William, eldest son of the late Princess Diana.

The drummer admitted to being nervous, and that he “was a bit shaky today on my own,” unlike when the Beatles were given the MBE (Member of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire) as a group in 1965.

Starr wasn’t sure about being called Sir Ringo, telling the BBC he doesn't know how to properly use the term.

Starr tweeted about the honor, calling the honor “another busy day for Sir. Ringo. Peace and love peace and love.” See the tweet below.
