KBE stands for Knight Commander of the British Empire.
Britain will give an honorary knighthood to Microsoft Corp. co-founder and chairman Bill Gates in recognition of his contribution to enterprise in Britain, the government says. Because he is not a British citizen, he cannot use "Sir" in front of his name.
