The Love Actually actress proved it Wednesday when she visited Buckingham Palace to be honored as a Dame Commander of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire, one of the highest honors the royals bestow, wearing sneakers.

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. "He said, 'This day isn't about me, it's about you, '" she added.

After receiving her damehood, Emma said it was "lovely" to be recognised, particularly as the ceremony was led by Prince William, of whom she said: "I've known him since he was little and we just sniggered at each other". "I'm going, 'why isn't this top of the list?' We have kids begging in schools for leftover food, that's just very bad". 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.

As someone who's been in the public eye for decades, Thompson has crossed paths with the royals before and is apparently an old friend of Prince Charles. She did, however, wear a fancy suit (adorned with a pin supporting equal pay for women) that measured up to his royal ensemble.
