It was announced that Bob Iger, former Disney CEO, was named an Honorary Knight of the British Empire by the United Kingdom government.
He was named alongside legendary composer John Williams by the Queen before her passing. This news was announced today on the United Kingdom government website. Bob Iger expressed his gratitude for the title on twitter, stating his gratitude and affection for the late Queen Elizabeth II and the people within the United Kingdom.
He continues to remark on his naming with John Williams, showing respect for the widely renowned composer. With Williams having a history with the Walt Disney Company, it seems fitting that the two would be named together.
With the world mourning the recent passing of Queen Elizabeth II, we can see the influence she had within her life. At Disneyland Resort, flags were lowered to half staff in remembrance of the Queen, and many guests placed items in the United Kingdom pavilion at EPCOT to remember her by.
