Years ago in the magazine Private Eye, there was an explanation why Lester Piggott did not receive a knighthood.  Apparently, he said something unflattering about Prince Phillip at a race meeting that was overheard by Her Royal Highness.

I can't imagine anything Lester Piggott ever said was overheard.
