Jagger Plans To Hide Knighthood From Richards

ROLLING STONE SIR MICK JAGGER is begging Britain's QUEEN not to release images of footage of him being knighted later this month (12DEC03) - because he's terrified of upsetting bandmate KEITH RICHARDS even more.

Hardman rocker Richards was furious when the honour was announced last year (02) and hit out again this week (begs1DEC03), dubbing the frontman "ludicrous" and the knighthood "paltry".

He ranted in a magazine interview, "It's not what the Stones are about. I thought it was ludicrous to take one of those gongs from the establishment when they did their very best to throw us in jail.

"I don't want to step out on stage with someone wearing a f***ing coronet and sporting the old ermine. I told Mick, 'It's a f***ing paltry honour."

Now Jagger is so scared of upsetting him further, he's trying to stop pictures of him receiving his investiture from QUEEN ELIZABETH II from escaping her London home, BUCKINGHAM PALACE.

A band insider says, "It's a really, really sore issue. Mick has asked the Palace that no images of him being knighted are made public - solely because he's worried about Keith doing his nut if he sees it on telly."
