Emma Thompson, who is reputed for supporting social causes and airing strong views, broke with tradition by wearing white sneakers to Buckingham Palace before reportedly asking Prince William for a kiss.

The outspoken actress and writer chose a casual look Wednesday night as she was named a Dame Commander of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire (MBE). Thompson balanced her footwear choice with a Stella McCartney suit, according to CNN.

Her next attempt to break with tradition was less successful, however, as her permission to kiss Prince William, who was conducting the ceremony, was turned down. Thompson took the response sportingly.

44I love Prince William

Thompson has joked about her MBE since finding out about her royal recognition in June in her trademark mordant way.

72Yes. Dame Commander of the British Empire. I73ve also had every seat I sit on just made slightly taller. It74re not quite sure why.75
