• No. They are addressed Dame. Like Dame Judi Dench..... and (forgive me) Dame Edna.
  • i dont think so
  • Yes, of course. To do otherwise would be racist.
  • Can women be knighted by the Queen? Since there is no female equivalent to a Knight Bachelor, women are always appointed to an order of chivalry. Women who are appointed to the Most Noble Order of the Garter or the Most Ancient and Most Noble Order of the Thistle are given the title of Lady rather than Dame.
  • Women who are knighted by Britain's Queen Elizabeth II are addressed as Dame "First Name." Example: Mary Stuart is knighted, and she is addressed as "Dame Mary."
