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

During the ceremony, Thompson, 59, looked beyond proud to receive the honor from Prince William. Sure, it may be one of the most prestigious titles in British society (outside of the royal family, natch), but Thompson was more fixated on the fact that she was standing in front of her idol, Prince William.

"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.
