Ringo Starr stepped into the spotlight today as the Beatles drummer was recognized for his services to music.

Prince William, the Duke of Cambridge knighted Starr today during a ceremony at Buckingham Palace. Starr told the BBC,  "It means a lot actually. It means recognition for the things we've done. I was really pleased to accept this."

The Beatles were previously honored in October 1965 when they received their Member of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire (MBE) medals from Queen Elizabeth II.

Starr admitted today's experience was a bit different. "I was a bit shaky today on my own," he said.
