Former soccer stud David Beckham has reportedly been nominated to join the prestigious ranks of the knights of the realm.
According to reports, Beckham could add the coveted honorific “Sir”, to his name as early as New Year’s Eve, or during the annual ceremony affirming new knights at Buckingham Palace, which would then add the title of “Lady” before his wife, Victoria Beckham‘s name.
According to a source, His Majesty’s Revenue and Customs specifically look at the higher honors, especially high earners like sports persons, to see if there is something that they want to double check. I am so ready for Sir David!
David has been a busy man. Along with his own line of underwear for H&M, David is the face of Belstaff. The campaign, featuring the sexy photo of David seen above, was shot by Peter Lindbergh and meant to evoke “the spirit of a band of brothers traveling across the English countryside.” I say, well done!
The retired football star also just finished filming The Man From U.N.C.L.E in London, this past Saturday (November 9, 2013). David will make his Hollywood debut in the film which has a star-studded cast.
