British actress Emma Thompson has been proclaimed today the Duke of Cambridge, the "lady" of the British Empire, a decoration awarded by Queen Elizabeth II last June.
The 59-year-old singer was awarded at a ceremony held yesterday at the Buckingham Palace and said she missed a "snigger" with Prince William, whom she knew from a child.
"I love Prince, I've known him since I was little and we smiled at each other," he said.
In addition, the actress said she asked the other on the line of succession on the British throne, if he could kiss him when he handed him the decoration, but he rejected that idea because he did not keep the protocol.
On that occasion, Tompson was wearing an emerald suit by British designer Stele McCartney in combination with white sneakers.
Actress, comedian and screenwriter, Emma Thompson was born on April 15, 1959 in London, England. Scottish actress Phillida Lav, recognized for her work on British television, began her British television in 1987, but her marriage to Kenneth Branagh catapulted to fame and began to draw the attention of specialized critics.
Thanks to this award, the actress wins a long list of awards she has won during her long career as actress, including two Oscars, three Baftas, two Golden Globe and one Emi.
