Emma Thompson sweetly tries to steal a kiss from Prince William

Oscar-winning actress and enemy of high-heeled shoes everywhere Emma Thompson has been honored with one of Britain's highest awards.

The actress, 59, has always been a good friend of Prince William's father, Prince Charles and Prince Harry with Thompson revealing three years ago that she used to send the Prince of Wales letters about her experiences at a theatre company in a bid to raise a smile during his very public split from Princess Diana.

Upon receiving her medal from the third in line to the British throne, Prince William, Emma took an opportunity, let's be honest, everyone would want - she asked the prince for a peck, Hello! magazine reports. "I'm going, 'why isn't this top of the list?' We have kids begging in schools for leftover food, that's just terrible". "I said, 'I can't kiss you, can I?' And he said, 'No don't!"

"I love Prince William", she gushed. "He said, "This day isn't about me, it's about you".

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.
