Prince Wiliam, 32, was the one who invested Sheridan Smith with the Order of the British Empire on Thursday, May 21.
“He said he’d seen some of my work, which is amazing, and was a fan of Gavin and Stacey,” she told journalists after she receiving the OBE. “And I congratulated him on his wonderful children and he shook my hand and I was shaking – it’s all a bit of a blur.”
“I never ever expected to get an OBE so this is absolutely indescribable,” Smith added.
Smith tweeted about her happiness after receiving this honor and posted a photo from the event.
“An unforgettable day…!” she wrote.
