Ian McKellen Receives Honorary Doctorate From Cambridge
The much-loved actor has been bestowed yet another title...
Ian McKellen has received an honorary doctorate from the University of Cambridge, his alma mater.
A touching tribute was paid to the Lord of the rings star, as he wrote on his Facebook page: "I am now an honorary Doctor of Letters at Cambridge University UK. My old college St Catharine's celebrated by flying the rainbow flag”.
He also shared a photo of him stood in front of St Catharine’s wearing a string of beads and Panama hat, with the rainbow flag flying behind him.
McKellen is now an honorary doctorate twice over, as the University of Ulster in Ireland gave him the title last year.
