Kenneth Branagh, who has played royalty on stage and screen, has been made a real-life knight by Queen Elizabeth II.

The British actor said he was pleased to be honored in the year of the queen’s Diamond Jubilee and the Olympics. He said, “It’s been a hell of a year for the U.K., and I feel very honored to be a tiny part of it.”

The Belfast-born Mr. Branagh was knighted at a Buckingham Palace ceremony Friday for services to drama and for his charity work in Northern Ireland.

He has also directed films, including “Henry V.”
