Comedian and actor Billy Connolly has been knighted just a few weeks ahead of his 75th birthday.
Connolly has been honoured for services to entertainment and charity.
The Duke of Cambridge bestowed the knighthood on the Glasgow-born star at a ceremony at Buckingham Palace.
After receiving the award, the comedian said he was "stunned" by the tribute. He said: "I'm kind of numb. It means a great deal to the people around me, and the fans."
