On March 11, 1997, Paul McCartney was knighted by Queen Elizabeth II for his "services to music". McCartney's late wife, Linda, did not attend the event as she was fighting breast cancer, but three of his four children were in attendance. McCartney dedicated his knighthood to George Harrison, Ringo Starr, John Lennon, and the citizens of the northwestern port of Liverpool, England. McCartney was very nervous before the ceremony, but he was still excited. “Proud to be British, wonderful day, and it’s a long way from a little terrace (street) in Liverpool,” he told reporters.
