Just when Duchess Kate was getting over that Swiss harlot debacle of 2017 with Prince William, she has NEW competition – and I’d actually be nervous over this one! I’m no Brit, but I’d bet on Emma Thompson for leading British treasure just after Paddington Bear, THE QUEEN, and fish ‘n chips. Those pesky royals finally caught on and decided to give Emma a dame status that will put her in the same pointless title sorority as Dames Judi Dench, Maggie Smith, and Helen Mirren. Alas, it sounds like Emma’s daming ceremony (or whatever they call it) was more fun than the other three because she tried to lock lips with William!
The Los Angeles Times says Emma got her new status today, and while I still haven’t seen any photos of her and QE2, the actress did have plenty to say about William since he’s the one who awarded her:
“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!’”
I’m sure that’s just because kisses with Kate would never be the same after playing tonsil hockey with Professor McGonagall, right?
Congratulations to Dame Emma Thompson! Today at Buckingham Palace, the actor received her Damehood from The Duke for services to Drama. pic.twitter.com/1gSfaawBii

Emma didn’t stop there. She wore sneakers and an equal pay pin to show she wasn’t going to be just like any other hoity toity dame. Page Six says she plans to use her honor to focus on children who don’t get adequate nourishment when school isn’t in session. Emma was previously on Late Night and told Seth Meyers how she kinda do-si-doed around the terrible origin of getting such a title from a hulking (now-drastically smaller) empire:
I mean badges are nice, but show some resolve, Emma! At least wait to get yours until you know THE QUEEN is going to be there to see your equal pay pin and scoff, “Ha! I could buy and sell every man in this joint.”
