Emma Thompson Collects Damehood In Equal Pay Badge And Brilliant White Trainers

09 November 2018

Emma Thompson reminded us why she's our go-to style muse this afternoon, as the actress eschewed tradition to receive her damehood. Alas, her hopes were dashed. The 59-year-old, who collected the prestigious accolade in recognition of her services to drama, said she and Prince William "sniggered" at each other when she asked for a kiss. "I said, 'I can't kiss you, can I?' And he said, 'No don't!'" E!

It was first announced in the Queen's Birthday Honours List in June.

The Love Actually actress proved it Wednesday when she visited Buckingham Palace to be honored as a Dame Commander of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire, one of the highest honors the royals bestow, wearing sneakers.

Yet despite her successful career, the actress confessed to feeling shy around Prince William revealing: "I love Prince William".

Thompson, who carried on her famously relaxed take on life by teaming her navy Stella McCartney suit with white trainers to the ceremony, has also previously spoken about what it's like to dance with Prince Charles.

"They send you a letter saying, 'Will you accept it?'" Thompson told Seth Meyers on his late-night talk show. "He said, "This day isn't about me, it's about you". "Or you can be like me and think, 'Hmmm, it's gonna be a really nice badge'".

At Thursday's ceremony she said she planned to use her new title to bring attention to the plight of poor children who don't get adequate food during school holidays.

Thompson collected the honour from the Duke of Cambridge with her husband Greg Wise, daughter Gaia and adopted son, Tindyebwa Agaba, by her side.
