Singer received his knighthood from Prince William in recognition of his services to music and charity
LONDON – Sir Rod, you wear it well.
Rocker Rod Stewart donned tartan trousers — a nod to his Scottish heritage — and a scarlet-trimmed military-style tunic to be knighted by Prince William at Buckingham Palace.
The raspy-voiced singer of “Maggie May,” ‘’Da Ya Think I’m Sexy” and “You Wear It Well” was honored “for services to music and charity.”
The 71-year-old star will be able to call himself Sir Roderick David Stewart.
He was joined by wife Penny Lancaster and sons Alastair and Aiden for Tuesday’s investiture ceremony.
When the award was announced by Queen Elizabeth II earlier this year, Stewart said it was “a monumental honor.” He added: “I thank her majesty and promise to ‘wear it well.’”
