Knight feeding waterbird to queen, say? (8)


I believe the answer is:

'knight' is the definition.
(Sir Bedivere in Arthurian legend)

'feeding waterbird to queen say?' is the wordplay.
I cannot quite see how this works, but
'waterbird' could be 'diver' (I've seen this before) and 'diver' is present in the answer.
'queen' could be 'bee' (queen bee is a type of bee) and 'bee' is located in the remaining letters.
No letters remain.
This may be the basis of the clue (or it may be nonsense).

Can you help me to learn more?

(Other definitions for bedivere that I've seen before include "Arthurian knight" , "knight with one hand" , "Round Tabler" , "Example of chivalry" , "One of Arthur's knights" .)

I've seen this clue in The Guardian.
