Emma Thompson Wears Sneakers, Flirts With Prince William At Damehood Ceremony

Emma Thompson is made a Dame Commander of the British Empire

Sure, it may be one of the most prestigious titles in British society (outside of the royal family, natch), but Thompson was more fixated on the fact that she was standing in front of her idol, Prince William. "He said, 'This day isn't about me, it's about you, '" she added.

Upon receiving her medal from the third in line to the British throne, Prince William, Emma took an opportunity, let's be honest, everyone would want - she asked the prince for a peck, Hello! magazine reports.

"I love Prince William", Thompson said after the ceremony.

"It's really lovely because I've always loved the boys and I've always been a long-term correspondent with their dad, it's a very lovely feeling", said Thompson.

As someone who's been in the public eye for decades, Thompson has crossed paths with the royals before and is apparently an old friend of Prince Charles.

In a Phoebe Philo-inspired move, the actress teamed the ensemble with a pair of box-fresh trainers - a fashion move we would love to hear Her Majesty's thoughts on.

The BBC notes that Dame Emma Thompson (henceforth known as two-time Academy Award victor Dame Emma Thompson) wore a tailored Stella McCartney tuxedo to the event, accessorizing with a pin that read "Equal Pay" and white sneakers.

"I've known him since he was little and we just sniggered at each other", she told reporters after Wednesday's investiture ceremony in London.

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

She plans to use the honor to focus attention on the plight of poor children who don't get adequate food during school holidays.
