Prince Charles Gave an Ambiguous Award to Robert Plant

Either Prince Charles is really tall, or Robert Plant is really short.

Either Prince Charles is really tall, or Robert Plant is really short.

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.
