Prince William Had the Best Reaction When Emma Thompson Tried to Kiss Him

Emma Thompson didn’t hold anything back (including her lips) when she came face-to-face with Prince William.

Yesterday, the 36-year-old prince honored the actress, 59, with her damehood at Buckingham Palace. Sure, it may be one of the most prestigious titles in British society (outside of the royal family, natch), but Thompson was more fixated on the fact that she was standing in front of her idol, Prince William.

So, she did what anyone would do and tried to kiss him (yep). The Love Actually star dished on their candid interaction following the ceremony, saying, “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!’”

Thompson went on to explain her boldness, adding, “If you’re first up, you have to be more formal on such an occasion, but he’s looking wonderful and doing so well. He said, ‘This day isn’t about me, it’s about you.’”

We have no doubt Kate Middleton would have let it slide.
