Who would have thought four musicians from Liverpool would be invited by Queen Elizabeth II to Windsor Palace in London. It happened today in 1965, when The Beatles were awarded M.B.E. (Members of the British Empire) medals by her majesty.
The band was the first non-military recipients of the award. They received the honor because of the amount of attention (money and publicity) that the Fab Four had generated for the United Kingdom.
