Legendary frontman of the Kinks, Ray Davies, is now Sir Ray Davies, after being knighted by the Prince of Wales at Buckingham Palace on Friday.

“It lasted three minutes and it went very well and I said goodbye and went home,” Davies, 72, said, according to the Daily Mail.

The Kinks formed in North London in 1964. Their third single, penned by Davies, was an international hit, topping the charts in the UK and reaching the Top 10 in the United States.
