“It’s fantastic, it’s quite nerve-wracking, there is nothing really that prepares you for it,” Benedict said of the honor. “It’s a unique occasion and I feel very privileged to be here and flattered to be recognized in this way.”

This was also the first time that Benedict had met the Queen of England.

He added, “It was wonderful, it was the first time I’ve ever met her and to meet her and be honored by her was extraordinary.”

FYI: Sophie is wearing a Burberry dress.

    Interesting. He has more glowing things to say about this stupid, posh, elitist “award” than he ever has about marriage or fatherhood.
