It's official: Ringo Starr has been knighted.

Today the famed Beatles drummer received the honour from Prince William at Buckingham Palace for his services to music.

Speaking to the BBC, 77-year-old Ringo said, "It means a lot actually. It means recognition for the things we've done. I was really pleased to accept this."

"I was a bit shaky today on my own," Ringo said today.
