"I'm going, 'why isn't this top of the list?' We have kids begging in schools for leftover food, that's just bad". News. "He said, 'This day isn't about me, it's about you'".

Global treasure Emma Thompson, star of stage and screen, the woman who gave Mrs. Potts a second life, and the reason that Love Actually is the masterpiece that it is just became a dame.

Thompson has always been a friend of Prince Charles and his boys. She even described dancing with the heir apparent as "better than sex" in a 2013 profile.


Thompson was recognised for her achievements in the Queen's Birthday Honours back in June and is rightfully proud of the incredible honour.

"This is a very rich country with hundreds of thousands of children who don't get enough to eat", she added.

Despite the formality of the honour, Thompson says she "sniggered" when Prince William made her a dame. "You can choose to say, 'Well, of course we don't have an empire anymore, thank God, because it was ghastly, colonial, racist, awful undertaking on every level, ' and actually have some moral principle about it", Thompson said on "Late Night with Seth Meyers" in September. "Or you can be like me and think, 'Hmmm, it's gonna be a really nice badge'".

Outside the palace, Thompson smiled and stood next to her husband Greg and two children, Gaia and Tindyebwa.
