The Oscar, Golden Globe and Emmy-winning actress and writer received the title of Dame on Wednesday from Prince William, and managed to fluster the Duke of Cambridge in the process. Alas, her hopes were dashed.
William was on hand to dole out the award to the honorees, which also included actress Sarah Gordy, but Thompson made the most of her time with the Prince, even trying to steal a quick kiss. "I said, "I can't kiss you, can I?' And he said, 'No don't"!'" she told the Associated Press, causing the royal to blush. The ceremony officially made her a Dame Commander of the British Empire - the female equivalent of a knighthood - for her services to drama.
Emma Thompson didn't hold anything back (including her lips) when she came face-to-face with Prince William.
Another commented, "And I thought I couldn't love her any more than I do already".
E! News said Thompson joked with William as as he presented her with the honor.
According to People magazine, she simply said: "If you're first up, you have to be more formal on such an occasion, but he's looking wonderful and doing so well".
"I love Prince William", Thompson said after the ceremony. She did, however, wear a fancy suit (adorned with a pin supporting equal pay for women) that measured up to his royal ensemble. "Or you can be like me and think, 'Hmmm, it's gonna be a really nice badge'".
She plans to use the honour to focus attention on the plight of poor children who don't get adequate food during school holidays.
Outside the palace, Thompson smiled and stood next to her husband Greg and two children, Gaia and Tindyebwa.
