 Sir Rod Stewart shared a joke at David Beckham‘s knighthood is ‘coming soon’.

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

During his short speech, he proclaimed that footballing legend David, 49, will soon receive the same honour he did almost a decade ago. 

Speaking in a video posted to X, he said: ‘Penny and I are so honoured to be ambassadors for the King’s trust.

‘I’m also wonderfully honoured to be a night. David, yours is coming soon’.

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

He was given an OBE in 2003 for his services to football. 

The former Manchester United player was just one of several famous faces at the regal 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 have been designed to celebrate students, teachers, alumni and partners of his foundation which provides educational courses, wellbeing programmes and spearheads regeneration projects across the UK, inspired by the monarch’s long-standing ethos of working with nature.

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

The King looked delighted to see him again and greeted him warmly. His Majesty referred to England’s recent 1-0 defeat to Iceland and the forthcoming Euros, chuckling: ‘It was very bad luck, I must say, David.’

Beckham replied: ‘No, no, I don’t think we should reward too much into that.’ ‘It doesn’t really matter, does it?’ His Majesty replied. ‘It was a warming up session.’

‘Warming up. We’ll be ok,’ the sportsman said. The King added: ‘Because you don’t want to expend it all in one go at the beginning.‘ ‘We’ll be ready,’ Beckham said.

Tonight’s awards, which are planned to be an annual event, saw nine awards given out, culminating in the monarch personally presenting The King Charles III Harmony Award, given to an individual to recognise their long-term commitment to the foundation’s mission.
