The Canadian-born film producer tells MailOnline (04April16): “I am for 100 per cent equality across the board for everybody, in all walks of life,’ David Furnish, 53.
“So the designation of a title is an example of something we need in order to get there. The reality is, if a woman is married to man with a title, she gets a title,” he argues.
‘”I think everybody should have the same opportunities and the same privileges and the same honours,” reveals David. “I think if we could just level the playing field in life as much as possible, then we’d all be in a much better place.”
Sir Elton, 69, was knighted by Queen Elizabeth II in 1998 during her New Year’s Honours list for his services to pop music and his work for Aids charities.
David argues the honours system should be made more relevant to the modern age.
“I don’t really understand the history of titles and the aristocracy in this country that much,” he admits, acknowledging that he is not even sure what his correct title would be if he was given one.
