Patrick Stewart knighted at Palace

The BBC reports on Patrick Stewart’s knighthood ceremony and how he paid tribute to the teacher that first encouraged him to perform.

The Yorkshire-born star said he would be celebrating his knighthood with Cecil Dormand, the teacher who first encouraged him to consider acting as a profession.

“He was the one that put a copy of Shakespeare in my hand [and] said, ‘Now get up on your feet and perform’.”

Although a republican I think that this is a very well deserved honour to bestowed upon him.
