Os­car-win­ning ac­tress

Emma Thomp­son has re­ceived one of Bri­tain’s high­est awards from

Prince Wil­liam in a Buck­ing­ham Palace cer­e­mony.

Thomp­son re­ceived a dame­hood on Wed­nes­day in recog­ni­tion for her splen­did ca­reer, an event made spe­cial by the fact that it was given to her by Wil­liam, a long­time friend.

Thomp­son was named for the fe­male equiv­a­lent of a knight­hood in the Queen’s Birth­day Hon­ors List in June.

She plans to use the honor to fo­cus at­ten­tion on poor chil­dren who don’t get ad­e­quate food dur­ing school hol­i­days.
