LONDON, England -- When Rudolph Giuliani received his honorary knighthood from Queen Elizabeth II on Wednesday, he joined an exclusive club with a membership dating back to ancient Rome.
Giuliani received the award in recognition for his work following the September 11 terrorist attacks in the United States.
Honorary knighthoods are awarded by the queen, on the advice of the UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office, to those who have made an important contribution to relations between their country and Britain.
Does this not disqualify Mayor Rudy Giuliani as a Presisidential candidate for the United States????????
United States Constitution.
No title of nobility shall be granted by the United States: and no person holding any office of profit or trust under them, shall, without the consent of the Congress, accept of any present, emolument, office, or title, of any kind whatever, from any king, prince, or foreign state.
Rudy Giuliani has accepted a title from the Queen of England. He cannot be president of the United States. The title of Honorary Knight. Is a title. The Queen is the head of the foreign state of Britain.
