Michael Bloomberg, the billionaire philanthropist and former mayor of New York, has been made an honorary knight by the Queen.
The 72-year-old American was knighted in honour of his “prodigious entrepreneurial and philanthropic endeavours”, the British embassy announced.
Mr Bloomberg, a well-known Anglophile with a £12 million house in Knightsbridge’s Cadogan Square, will not be able to style himself “Sir Mike” because he is not a British citizen.
If he chooses, however, he can add the letters KBE to the end of his name to signify his membership as an honorary knight of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire.
