Quentin Blake (don't worry, it's lovely news)...

...has been knighted:

The 80-year-old said: "It's a huge surprise in one way and in another I've got used to it.

"I'm published a lot in France and Europe generally and a lot of them assume that I am one [a knight]. In fact there was a broadcast on French radio that referred to me as Lord Quentin all the way through."
