McKellen, 68, who is already a knight, was named a Companion of Honor – the highest royal honor in Britain. It is a title bestowed on 65 living people.
The Queen said the Lord of the Rings star was chosen for his "outstanding achievements as an actor and also for his work in championing the causes of diversity."

Kylie Minogue weathered a high-profile breakup with actor Olivier Martinez, but she says she's not in "crisis talks" with the actor – and being single doesn't worry her at all.
"Being a fatalist, I always felt that a relationship runs for the duration that it's meant to run," she tells the Mail on Sunday's You magazine about her February split with Martinez. "We separated and that was that. It cracks me up that I was supposed to be in 'crisis talks' with Ollie. We did have a lovely time though, we definitely did."
Minogue, 39, has credited Martinez, 41, with helping her battle breast cancer. Despite the public speculation about her love life, she insists, "I feel quite fulfilled ... I've had good relationships."
