Prince William Becomes Knight, Looks Stupid

Prince William was knighted on Monday, making him the most senior order of British chivalry at Saint George's Chapel in Windsor Castle (whatever that means).

Queen Elizabeth II, William's paternal grandmother, formally installed the prince as a Royal Knight as an early 26th birthday present (his birthday is June 21), according to People.

All of which is cool and everything, but why did it have to involve this ridiculous getup?

Even when they're not playing with swords or slaying dragons, I thought knights got to wear bad ass chain metal or suits of armor.

Something more like this.

Anyway, if you want more info., visit AFP or People.
