Emma Thompson sweetly tries to steal a kiss from Prince William

Emma Thompson is made a Dame Commander of the British Empire

Worldwide treasure Emma Thompson, star of stage and screen, the woman who gave Mrs. Potts a second life, and the reason that Love Actually is the masterpiece that it is just became a dame.

When actress Emma Thompson went to Buckingham Palace on Wednesday to receive her damehood from Prince William for services to the acting industry, she had one very cheeky request of the Duke. Alas, her hopes were dashed.

"I'm very outspoken politically", said the 59-year-old, adding that she hoped to use her damehood to bring attention to so-called "holiday hunger", which sees up to three million United Kingdom children go hungry during the school holidays. "I said, 'I can't kiss you, can I?' And he said, 'No don't!'" E!

Thompson was recognised for her achievements in the Queen's Birthday Honours back in June and is rightfully proud of the incredible honour.

The 59-year-old added. "If you're first up, you have to be more formal on such an occasion, but he's looking wonderful and doing so well".

Danny Ainge Shoots Down Major Boston Celtics Trade Rumor
Ainge said in a Thursday interview on 98.5 The Sports Hub's "Toucher & Rich" that he hasn't heard any unhappiness from Rozier. So it seems to make sense for the Celtics to kick the tires on a potential trade.

Thompson wore a teal suit and white sneakers to the event, according to Vanity Fair.

"They send you a letter saying, 'Will you accept it?' You can choose not to".

"I love Prince William", Thompson said after the ceremony. "Or you can be like me and think, 'Hmmm, it's gonna be a really nice badge'".

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

Thompson reportedly plans to use the honor to shine a light on fighting child hunger around the holidays, as well as furthering causes that are close to her heart as a self-described "card-carrying feminist" and "human rights advocate".
