Keira Knightly receives her OBE – but her husband breaks strict royal protocol

Keira Knightly dazzled in an incredible lemon Chanel suit as she collected her OBE from the Prince of Wales.

But it wasn’t just what she was wearing that everyone was talking about – it was what husband James Righton should have been.

The rockstar went to Buckingham Palace without a tie, breaking royal protocol in his open shirt and grey suit.

But the Klaxon’s frontman’s faux pas was never likely to cloud Keira’s big day. Father Will Knightley and her mother Sharman Macdonald joined the couple at the ceremony as the trendy 33-year-old very much looked the part.

Her matching suit and hat were a huge hit, with her taupe shoe boots, a classy black ribbon tie and light pink belt setting the outfit off perfectly.

The Bend It Like Beckham star’s charity work was recognised, really starting in 2014 when she made a plea for help in South Sudan.

She said in the video: "They love their children as we do, they want an education for them, they want to give them a secure home and the freedom to run about in safety.

"Instead, they watch, powerless, as their toddlers play by the sewage. There is nowhere else for them."

Dedicated Keira also travelled with Oxfam and in 2010 posed underwater for a video made to raise awareness of the water Aid campaign.

It wasn’t just her charity work which saw her honoured in London.

The OBE was also for services to drama, with the actress has portrayed women from across several centuries in period dramas such as Pride & Prejudice, Anna Kerenina and The Imitation Game.
