Sir Laurence Olivier.
Sir Ian McKellen.
Sir Patrick Stewart.
One of these things is not like the others…..
As part of the Queen’s Birthday Honours List, Mr. Branagh can now count himself among that pantheon of Shakespearean gods – he, too, has been knighted and shall now be Sir Kenneth.
I could swear that we’d had a discussion about his lack of Sir awhile back, and I’d gone googling for whether he was or was not in fact knighted. But now I can’t find it. So it was a bit of a surprise to me to learn that yes it is finally official, but that it only just happened within the last couple of days.
Congratulations, Sir Kenneth!
