Emma Thompson Defends Wearing White Sneakers to Become Dame at Buckingham Palace

Emma Thompson wore white sneakers earlier this month while in the presence of Prince William at Buckingham Palace to become a Dame Commander of the Order of the British Empire.

The 59-year-old actress responded to the controversy on the My Dad Wrote a Porno podcast, saying, “They were posh trainers.” To be specific, the sneakers were Stella McCartney‘s $325 Stan Smith vegan style sneakers.

“Of course you have to understand as well as not listening to any f—ing podcast ever, well yours obviously, but mostly not. I don’t do social media so I have no idea when they say ‘Oh my god you caused a stir.’ I go, “Why?’” she continued.

She then added “I got into terrible trouble wearing jeans to Cannes once. I was wearing a very sparkly top look, if you’re wearing a sparkly top it doesn’t matter what you’re wearing underneath it. Their fashion police went, ‘Oh my god! What is she doing? She is destroying the whole Cannes experience! Everyone is coming to see the beautiful Cannes actresses all dressed up looking gorgeous and look what she is doing, she’s wrecking the whole thing!’”

Emma Thompson is officially a Dame!

The actress was appointed a Dame Commander of the Order of the British Empire (DBE) at an investiture ceremony at Buckingham Palace on Wednesday (November 7) in London, England. She posed alongside her husband Greg Wise outside of the palace to commemorate the occasion.

During the ceremony, Emma admitted she wanted to kiss Prince William but he was against it.

“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!’” she recalled (via E! News).

“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,’” she added.
