Christopher Lee, Dracula, Dooku and Adorer of Death Metal, Dies at 93
3. Gets Titles When the Queen Has a Birthday
On 16 June 2001, Christopher Lee was a participant in that year’s Queen’s Birthday Honours, more specifically Lee was appointed a Commander of the Order of the British Empire “for services to Drama”. This title led to Prince Charles officially naming Lee a Knight Bachelor “For services to Drama and to Charity” in 2009 as part of the Queen’s Birthday Honours that year. Seems like an aging Queen of England makes for an accolade heavy Sir Christopher Lee.
