Jony Ive is now officially Sir Jonathan Ive.Apple’s design guru was knighted in a ceremony Wednesday at London’s Buckingham Palace in recognition for his many contributions to the world of design over the years.

The BBC reports that Ive was knighted by Princess Anne, who briefly chatted with the designer about the iPad she owns.
