  1. Doesn't want knighthood
  2. Doesn't maintain residence in UK
  3. The Queen has  slowed down Pop Star knighting.
  4. The Queen would have some Buckingham Palace official ask if the possible recipient (Ringo) would accept. Seeing as how he wouldn't accept, why ask?

The Queen doesnt like Thomas The Tank Engine, prefers Fireman Sam.

It's because he hasn't really done anything noteworthy since 1970. He had the MBE in 1965; there's no real reason for him to have another honour.

(ducks, runs for cover)

I'd like to say it's because he's a tax exile who doesn't live in the UK, but the same could be said for Sir Tom Jones and plenty of other people who have been knighted.

I hate to say it but I think you're right, sorry Ringo, you know that we love you.hearta-hard-days-night-ringo-4
