Following his nomination to the prestigious New Year’s Honors List, David Beckham looks to be in line for knighthood in 2014 — assuming he passes a scrupulous examination from the HRMC. Climbing the ladder of Europe’s most illustrious football teams such as Manchester United, Real Madrid, AC Milan and Paris Saint-Germain F.C., as well as a high-profile move to the LA Galaxy, has seen Becks achieve many of his childhood dreams. Receiving this potential knighthood, on the other hand, would certainly be a lifetime achievement that trumps all of his previous accolades. The official title of “Sir” will be presented to Golden Balls for his contribution to British football and philanthropic endeavors. Stay tuned for more news surrounding this announcement, which already sees rumors flying around that his pal Prince William, Duke of Cambridge will carry out the ceremony.
