Knighthood Status for Eric Clapton – How Can I help?
Eric Clapton has not yet been knighted by Queen Elizabeth II. However, he has received two royal honours. On 3 November 2004 in a ceremony at Buckingham Palace, Eric Clapton was made a Commander of the Order of the British Empire, or (CBE). It was conferred by the Princess Royal (Princess Anne).
In 1994 the Queen made Eric Clapton an Officer of the Order of the British Empire (OBE) in her New Year’s Honours List for “contribution to British Life.”
If honoured again, he would receive a knighthood. He would then be known as Sir Eric Clapton. Much deserved due to service to the Crown and Charitable Donations made in multiple ways, the highlight being Eric Clapton’s “Crossroads Facility” in St. Johns, Antigua, West Indies (see http://crossroadsantigua.org/ ) as well as many, many other FREE appearances and/or the HUGE Auction of some 100 guitars from Clapton’s private collection. What can I do? Here’s the address, a simple letter will do:
Honours & Appointments Secretariat
Attn: P.M. David Cameron - Cabinet Office - Room G39
1 Horse Guards Rd.
London, England, SW1A - 2HQ
Or, and beyond that her heir’s, the Prince of Wales, Charles (Son) at pending, the following
Clarence House, London SW1A 1BA
Prince Charles is presently heir to the British throne. He will not become king until his mother, Queen Elizabeth, abdicates (gives up the throne), retires or dies. When either of these happen, Prince Charles may abdicate and pass the throne to his eldest son Prince William.
