Oscar winner Emma Thompson sniggered at Prince William to let her kiss him
Emma Thompson received the highest honor possible from Prince William and even tried to steal a kiss from the Duke of Cambridge.
The celebrated actress received a damehood from William at Buckingham Palace on Wednesday morning, November 7, 2018.
As reported by the Associated Press, the actress flirted a little with the royal, a longtime friend of hers, and even asked him if she could kiss him.

The 59-year-old star showed up at the palace wearing an emerald green pantsuit with a flashy badge from the Fawcett Society, a group that raises awareness for equal pay.
But, although she looked lovely, the most interesting piece of clothing worn by Thompson were her shoes. Instead of fancy high heels, which she reportedly hates, she sported white sneakers.

A LITTLE BIT OF HARMLESS FLIRTING
During the ceremony, which also honored actress Sarah Gordy, Thompson received a damehood for her contribution to the arts and for being 'one of Britain's most versatile and celebrated actresses.'
“I love Prince William. I’ve known him since he was little, and we just sniggered at each other. I said, ‘I can’t kiss you, can I?’ And he said, ‘No don’t’!”

OTHER FELLOW ARTISTS
Although she was turned down, the 59-year-old didn't take it personally and recognized that the Prince was couldn't stray from protocol and allow her to kiss him.
Thompson was named for the honor back in June, along with other artists such as Tom Hardy, who recently starred in Marvel's "Venom," and Keira Knightley.
SIR RINGO STARR
The last time Prince William had the chance to honor an artist with a title was in March when former Beatles drummer Ringo Starr was given the title of 'Sir.'
The musician had to wait quite a long time to see his contribution to the arts recognized by the Royal Family, especially since he witness his bandmate, Paul McCartney, be knighted by the Queen of England 41 years ago.
