"I love Prince William. Ive known him since he was little, and we just sniggered at each other," she says. "I said, I cant kiss you, can I? And he said, No dont!"

“I love Prince William, Ive known him since he was little, and we just sniggered at each other. I said, ‘I cant kiss you, can I?’ And he said, ‘No dont’!” she told the Associated Press, causing the royal to blush. “If youre first up you have to be more formal on such an occasion, but hes looking wonderful and doing so well. He said, ‘This day isnt about me, its about you.”

LONDON — Oscar-winning actress Emma Thompson has received one of Britains highest awards from Prince William — and thought about giving him a kiss at the Buckingham Palace ceremony.

The two-time Oscar winner was recognized for her contributions to drama throughout her lengthy career, which includes the films “Love, Actually”, “Sense And Sensibility”, “The Remains Of The Day”, “Howard’s End”, “In The Name Of The Father” and the “Harry Potter” franchise.

“Im very outspoken, politically, Im a card-carrying feminist, human rights advocate, so good for them, because the establishment need more people who can speak up for those things,” she explained as she was joined by her husband, actor Greg Wise, and children Gaia, 18 and Tindyebwa, 30, who beamed with pride during the ceremony. A former Rwandan child soldier, Thompson and Wise adopted Tindyebwa in 2003.

Dressed in a navy Stella McCartney suit and white sneakers, Thompson also wore a Fawcett Society Equal Pay button, telling the press she hopes to use her damehood to help stop children from going hungry over the school holidays.

Thompson was named for the female equivalent of a knighthood in the Queens Birthday Honors List in June.

“This is a very rich country with hundreds of thousands of children who dont get enough to eat,” she added. “Im sorry, but thats just rubbish. Im going, ‘why isnt this top of the list?’ We have kids begging in schools for leftover food, thats just awful.”

The 59-year-old actress said she “sniggered” when the Duke of Cambridge presented her with the honor and even asked if she could give him a kiss. 

“I love Prince William,” she gushed. “Ive known him since he was little, and we just sniggered at each other. I said, I cant kiss you, can I? And he said, No dont!” 

“If youre first up, you have to be more formal on such an occasion,” the Love Actually star said, “but hes looking wonderful and doing so well. He said, This day isnt about me, its about you.”

In fact, it looks like Thompson is fond of several members of the royal family, including Prince Harry and Prince Charles.

“Its really lovely because Ive always loved the boys, and Ive always been a long-term correspondent with their dad,” she said. “Its a very lovely feeling.”

Thompson collected the honor with her family members by her side. The proud supporters included her husband, Greg Wise, as well as her daughter, Gaia, and her son, Tindyebwa Agaba, whom the actress adopted in 2004. 

The Sense and Sensibility star wore an elegant blue suit and white sneakers for the momentous occasion. 

Its no surprise the star received the honor. After all, shes received a number of awards over the course of her career, including two Oscars, two Golden Globes and three BAFTA Awards.
