Britain's Queen Elizabeth stands with Microsoft chairman and philanthropist Bill Gates after presenting him with an honorary knighthood at Buckingham Palace, London, March 2, 2005. Queen Elizabeth bestowed an honorary knighthood on Gates on Wednesday but confessed to the Microsoft chairman that she wasn't much of a computer buff. Gates, who is one of the world's richest men, said outside Buckingham Palace that the title KBE (Knight Commander of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire) had been awarded in recognition of his contributions to both business and charity.
