Sir Bill Gates And The Queen

Bill Gates was knighted today, and here are some pictures and articles.


BBC - Knighthood For Microsoft’s Gates


Todd Bishop - Gates Receives Knighthood

Seattle PI - Bill Gates Receives Honorary Knighthood

Bloomberg - Bill Gates Receives Honorary Knighthood From Queen At Palace

Microsoft PressPass - Statement By Bill Gates On Receiving An Honorary Knighthood

Also, you cannot call him “Sir Bill Gates”. His official title? “Bill Gates, KBE”, for Knight of the British Empire, although the actual title is even longer (Bill Gates, Knight Commander of the Order of the British Empire). Or, if you’re from Slashdot, anything with “Borg” in it will be fine.

Did you know: This honor was to be bestowed on Gates in January 2004, but a “mutually convenient” time could not be found until 14 months later. I know I would have found time!

  2. I just want to say congratulations Mr. Gates. You deserve it for your hard work in the IT industry, including you passionate causes towards helping the less fortunate around the world.

    I salute you.
