Emma Thompson on royal honours list

Tuesday April 23, 2013

Emma Thompson and her mother Phyllida Law will be honoured by the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland this summer.

The acting duo - who have starred in many films together, including The Winter Guest - will be awarded honorary doctorates in drama by the Glasgow-based institution in July.

Unveiling the line-up, Royal Conservatoire principal Professor John Wallace CBE said: "Graduation is always a time for celebration.

It is also a time for us to recognise those artists who have helped create a far-reaching voice for the arts in the UK - a voice which is listened to throughout the world."

The honours for the mother and daughter team will see them join the likes of singer Annie Lennox, comedian Billy Connolly and actress Tilda Swinton, who have all received honorary doctorates from the Royal Conservatoire, previously the RSAMD.
