Emma Thompson sweetly tries to steal a kiss from Prince William

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

Emma Thompson is officially a Dame!

She said: "I'd like to inspire others and empower others to believe in themselves, especially people with Down's syndrome".

E! News said Thompson joked with William as as he presented her with the honor.

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.

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

Notre Dame moves up to No
Alabama, Clemson, Notre Dame and MI hold the top four spots in this week's rankings, followed by Georgia at No. 5. Unbeaten Notre Dame moved up one spot to No. 3 and MI jumped a spot after a 42-7 victory against Penn State .

Thompson has always been a friend of Prince Charles and his boys. "I'm going, 'why isn't this top of the list?' We have kids begging in schools for leftover food, that's just very bad".

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.

Though the two-time Oscar victor has known the honor was coming since seeing her name on Queen Elizabeth II's Birthday Honors List last June, she was presented with her investiture pin at Buckingham Palace by the prince on Wednesday.

Despite the formality of the honour, Thompson says she "sniggered" when Prince William made her a dame.

"They send you a letter saying, 'Will you accept it?'" Thompson told Seth Meyers on his late-night talk show.

The newly minted Dame was recognised in the Queen's Birthday Honours list in June, and was joined by her husband, Greg Wise, and their children, Gaia, 18, and Tindyebwa, 19, for the ceremony.
