Sir Rod Stewart joked that David Beckham's knighthood

Sir Rod Stewart shared a joke about David Beckham’s knighthood “coming soon”.

The rock star, 79, received his own knighthood in 2016 and appeared at the inaugural King’s Foundation awards ceremony in London alongside his wife Penny Lancaster.

During his brief speech, he proclaimed that soccer legend David, 49, will soon receive the same honor he received nearly a decade ago.

The former England captain is yet to join a finite list of sporting stars to receive such an honour, including the likes of the late Sir Bobby Charlton and former Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson.

He received an OBE in 2003 for his services to football.

The former Manchester United player was just one of several famous faces who attended the majestic event in London.

He was seen sharing a joke with the monarch, 75, and looked dapper in a black suit and tie.

David, who is married to Posh Spice Victoria Beckham, was in good spirits throughout the event, which was also attended by actress Sienna Miller.

The King’s Foundation Awards are designed to celebrate students, teachers, alumni and partners of his foundation, which offers educational courses, wellbeing programs and spearheads regeneration projects across the UK, inspired by the ancient spirit of the monarch of work with nature.

Beckham was recently announced as an ambassador for the King’s Foundation and met Her Majesty at Highgrove.

The king seemed delighted to see him again and greeted him warmly. His Majesty referred to England’s recent 1-0 defeat to Iceland and the upcoming European Championship, laughing: “I must say it was very bad luck, David.”

Beckham responded: “No, no, I don’t think we should reward too much for that.” “It doesn’t really matter, does it?” His Majesty responded. “It was a warm-up session.”

‘Warming up. We will be fine,’ said the athlete. The King added: “Because you don’t want to spend it all at once at the beginning.” “We’ll be ready,” Beckham said.

At tonight’s awards, which are expected to be an annual event, nine awards were presented, culminating in the monarch’s personal presentation of the King Charles III Harmony Award, given to an individual to recognize their long-term commitment to the mission of the foundation.
