On the other hand, the Royal Family uploaded a photo of Brian May and Yolanda Brown, who was also decorated.
“Musicians Brian May and YolanDa Brown congratulate each other after receiving the honors from the King during an Investiture at Buckingham Palace. YolanDa performed in front of Her Majesty as part of yesterday’s Commonwealth Day Service at Westminster Abbey.”
In December, Brian May expressed his feelings and said that he considered his new title as: “Sort of a commission to do the things you’d expect a gentleman to do: fight for justice, fight for people who don’t have a voice.”

“I am happy and grateful to receive this honor. I will view knighthood not so much as a reward, but more as a charge, a commission, to continue to fight for justice, to be a voice for those who have no voice. I will strive to be worthy, to be that Knight in Shining Armor,” he mentioned.
As well as being a musician and astrophysicist, May is also one of the founders of the Save Me Trust, which campaigns for fox rights, while he is Vice President of the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (RSPCA).
