Emma Thompson becomes a dame but doesn't get to kiss Prince William

Emma Thompson becomes a dame but doesn't get to kiss Prince William

Even a ceremony as grand as receiving a damehood couldn't stifle Emma Thompson's quick wit.

The actress, 59, has always been a good friend of Prince William's father, Prince Charles and Prince Harry with Thompson revealing three years ago that she used to send the Prince of Wales letters about her experiences at a theatre company in a bid to raise a smile during his very public split from Princess Diana.

That's right, Thompson saved herself from wearing a pair of fancy heels that surely would have distracted her during her big moment with Prince William. "I've known him since he was little, and we just sniggered at each other", she told the Associated Press. "I said, "I can't kiss you, can I?' And he said, 'No don't"!" You can choose to say, 'Well, of course we don't have an empire anymore, thank God, because it was ghastly, colonial, racist, dreadful, dreadful undertaking on every level, ' and actually have some moral principle about it.

Thompson has always been a friend of Prince Charles and his boys.

"This is a very rich country with hundreds of thousands of children who don't get enough to eat", she added.

In other signature choices for the outspoken star, Thompson drew praise from fans online for turning up to the royal occasion in white sneakers and sporting a badge in support of equal pay - her show against formal protocol echoing her appearance at the 2014 Golden Globes, where she famously kicked off her Louboutin heels as she took the stage to present an award with a martini in hand.

Thompson's husband, actor and producer Greg Wise, 31-year-old son Tindyebwa and 18-year-old daughter Gaia attended the ceremony.

The actress, whose recent credits include Johnny English Strikes Again, is now filming Russell T Davies' new TV drama Years and Years, in which she plays an ambitious politician.
