Elton John's career has been packed with endless award wins, but his newest honour has left him feeling truly "blessed."

This week, the 74-year-old visited Windsor Castle, where Prince Charles made him a member of the "Order of the Companions of Honour." It's an exclusive reward, earned by Elton for his contributions to music and charity.

John required a walking stick to get around during the ceremony, as he's recovering from a recent hip procedure that forced him to postpone dates on his farewell tour. But he's not done performing just yet.
