Actress Emma Thompson shared a laugh with Prince William as she was made a dame at Buckingham Palace on Wednesday.

British actress, Emma Thompson has revealed that she shared a cheeky exchange with the Duke of Cambridge upon receiving her damehood at Buckingham Palace on Wednesday.

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 love Prince William, I’ve known him since he was little, and we just sniggered at each other,” the star confessed. “I said, ‘I can’t kiss you, can I?’ And he said, ‘No don’t’!”

Even though she did not land a kiss, Thompson, who dressed in a pair of sneakers and a suit for the ceremony, sang the prince’s praises. “He’s looking wonderful and doing so well,” she commented. “He said, ‘This day isn’t about me, it’s about you.’”

Dame Emma Thompson highlighted her work as an activist after the ceremony, describing herself as “a card-carrying feminist” and “human rights advocate”.

“I’m very outspoken politically,” she said, adding that she hoped to use her damehood to bring attention to so-called “holiday hunger”, which sees up to three million UK children go hungry during the school holidays.

The Oscar- and Bafta-winning star also told reporters after the event that it was “a very lovely feeling” to become a dame for services to drama.

Dame Emma is playing celebrity-turned-politician Vivienne Rook in an upcoming TV show Years & Years.

The six-part series hits the BBC next year and is from Russell T Davies, whose credits include Doctor Who and Queer as Folk.
