Paul McCartney Awarded French's Highest Public Distinction


Witnessed by his family members, the 70-year-old former Beatle received the Legion of Honour from French president.

Paul McCartney was honored by French President Francois Hollande for his contribution in music on Saturday, September 8. The former Beatle received the highest public distinction that made him an officer of the Legion of Honour.

Upon shaking hands with Hollande and posing for the cameras, McCartney gave a thumb up. Hollande was also joking with McCartney about his favor of The Rolling Stones instead of The Beatles. The 70-year-old's family attended the event held inside the Elysee Palace in support of him.

Legion of Honour has been given to other celebrities such as actors Clint Eastwood and Robert De Niro, and singers Liza Minnelli and Lenny Kravitz. McCartney himself has received another high-rank recognition when he was knighted by Britain's Queen Elizabeth in March 1997.
