Will it be Sir Captain or Captain Sir? Patrick Stewart to be Knighted by Queen Elizabeth II

Patrick Stewart, mostly known for his role as Captain Jean-Luc Picard on Star Trek: The Next Generation, is among 9 individuals who have been selected by a committee within British Cabinet Office to receive an official title from Queen Elizabeth II earlier next year.
Stewart received the OBE (Order of the British Empire) in 2001. He is being recognized for success in acting (drama), and his work with charities, specifically Refuge, an institution established for the domestically abused.
The 69-year old actor, once the rite is complete, will be formally known as Sir Patrick Stewart of Yorkshire. I think it's safe to say that he's boldly gone where no Star Trek actor has gone before. Congrats, Sir Picard!
