Emma Thompson Collects Damehood In Equal Pay Badge And Brilliant White Trainers

Emma Thompson stands outside Buckingham Palace, London, after being made a Dame Commander of the British Empire by Prince William on Wednesday Nov. 7, 2018. "He said, 'This day isn't about me, it's about you, '" she added.

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

Actress Emma Thompson was all smiles Wednesday as she received her damehood at Buckingham Palace from the Duke of Cambridge himself. 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.

Thompson is a longtime friend of Prince Charles and the royal family.

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

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.

If that isn't enough to garner her look gram-worthy status, Thompson collected her regal accolade wearing a badge for the Fawcett Society - which raises awareness for equal pay.

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.

"It's really lovely because I've always loved the boys, and I've always been a long-term correspondent with their dad", she said at the ceremony.

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".
