"I said, 'I can't kiss you, can I?' And he said, 'No don't!"

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.

English actor Emma Thompson poses with her medal and insignia after she was appointed a Dame Commander of the Order of the British Empire (DBE) at an investiture ceremony at Buckingham Palace in London, Nov. 7, 2018.

"I love Prince William", Thompson said after the ceremony.

Thompson is a longtime friend of Prince Charles and the royal family. She even described dancing with the heir apparent as "better than sex" in a 2013 profile.

Yet despite her successful career, the actress confessed to feeling shy around Prince William revealing: "I love Prince William".

Another commented, "And I thought I couldn't love her any more than I do already".

"They send you a letter saying, 'Will you accept it?'" Thompson told Seth Meyers on his late-night talk show. "You can choose to say, 'Well, of course we don't have an empire anymore, thank God, because it was ghastly, colonial, racist, terrible undertaking on every level, ' and actually have some moral principle about it", Thompson said on "Late Night with Seth Meyers" in September.

Dressed in a navy Stella McCartney suit and white sneakers, Thompson also wore a Fawcett Society Equal Pay button, telling the press she hopes to use her damehood to help stop children from going hungry over the school holidays.
