Bill GatesAs if being the world’s wealthiest man wasn’t enough, William Gates (also known as Bill Gates to the commonfolk) will be knighted by the Queen at Buckingham Palace on March 2, 2005.  His title will be Knight Commander of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire.

lol i could just imagine all these “knights” the queen is making going into battle as knights of the old times used to. oh no look out! its elton john and bill gates! retreat!

I agree with jigabarov.  But a knight commander? I dont think so. Not in a million years would I give to to a commoner. I mean Gates is no peasant, but he is not born in nobility in any way. A knight protects its people, Gates protects only his wallet.  Lastly, I highly doubt Gates is Catholic as I assume the Queen will knight him as a Knight of the Cross or Knights Templar. Sad to see the Queen give away an honourable title such as this to a commoner with 0 ethical value.
