“`Britain’s New Year’s Honors List is set to honor 1960s model Twiggy and Monty Python actor Michael Palin, among others. Twiggy, a model who shot to stardom during The Beatles era, will become a Dame, the female equivalent of a Knight; while Palin, whose second career has seen him become an acclaimed travel documentary maker, receives a Knighthood.

          MICHAEL PALIN             TWIGGY

“`Twiggy, whose modeling career lasted for decades, burst on the London Mod scene as one of the original It girls. She earned worldwide fame by seventeen, and went on to a career in films and theater. She shaped female attitude for several generations.  Palin’s knighthood honors his contribution to travel, culture, and geography.  He portrayed a knight before, as Sir Galahad in Monty Python and the Holy Grail.

“`Jim Carter, who plays the acerbic Mr. Carson in Downton Abbey, and Christopher Nolan, director of Inception and Dunkirk, will also be recognized. The honors process starts with nominations from the public.  This is winnowed down by committees, and sent to the prime minister before various honors are bestowed by Queen Elizabeth II, or by senior royals, the following year.

Until next time>                               “never forget”
