Emma Thompson honored with damehood in London

She also shared her affection for Prince William with reporters, according to the Associated Press.

The actress, whose recent credits include Johnny English Strikes Again, is now filming Russell T Davies' new TV drama Years and Years, in which she plays an ambitious politician.

The British star was receiving a damehood in recognition of her lengthy career, which has included Oscar wins for Best Actress for Howards End and Best Adapted Screenplay for Sense and Sensibility, as well as memorable turns in Love Actually, In the Name of the Father and the Harry Potter franchise.

"I've worked really hard in what I believe in", said Gordy, who was recognised for her services to the arts and people with disabilities. "I've known him since he was little, and we just sniggered at each other", she says.

"I love Prince William", Thompson said after the ceremony. It was first announced in the Queen's Birthday Honours List in June.

The two-time Oscar victor 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. "You can choose to say, 'Well, of course we don't have an empire anymore, thank God, because it was ghastly, colonial, racist, terrible undertaking on every level, ' and actually have some moral principle about it", Thompson said on "Late Night with Seth Meyers" in September.

Dame Emma, who arrived at the Palace in white trainers and an emerald Stella McCartney suit, was joined by her husband Greg Wise and their children Tindy and Gaia.

Thompson also said she plans to use the honor to raise awareness about schoolchildren who don't get enough to eat during school vacations, the AP reported.
