Prince Charles Gave an Ambiguous Award to Robert Plant
Led Zeppelin frontman Robert Plant received a CBE award (Commander of the Order of the British Empire) from Prince Charles at Buckingham Palace. What this means is… wait…I have no idea what this fucking means. But it’s a big deal in Britain.
Apparently it’s a step towards Knighthood. According to Wikipedia…
The Most Excellent Order of the British Empire is a British order of chivalry established on 4 June 1917 by King George V. The Order includes five classes in civil and military divisions. In decreasing order of seniority, these are:
- Knight Grand Cross (GBE) or Dame Grand Cross (GBE)
- Knight Commander (KBE) or Dame Commander (DBE)
- Commander (CBE)
- Officer (OBE)
- Member (MBE)
I think this gives Plant the authority to not “mind the gap” on the subway. But I could be wrong.
