Monty Python Star Michael Palin Knighted

Forty-four years after leading the Knights Who Say 'Ni!'

In Monty Python and the Holy Grail, actor Michael Palin is now a knight in real life.

According to ComicBook.com, Palin was officially bestowed the honor by the Duke of Cambridge at Buckingham Palace this week.

However, the honors were not for his contributions to entertainment with Monty Python, but for "services to travel, culture and geography" stemming from Palin's second entertainment career as a travel host as well as travel books.
