That Makes Two OBE’s for the Lewis Household
by Julia Pritchard | Daily Mail | November 7, 2017
Actress Helen McCrory beamed with delight on Tuesday as she was awarded an OBE by Queen Elizabeth II at Buckingham Palace.
The Peaky Blinders star, 49, could not contain her joy as she proudly posed after her Investiture ceremony with husband Damian Lewis, and her honour for services to drama in hand. Helen radiates beside Damian as she collected her OBE… after revealing she mistook the invite for an unpaid bill.
The mother-of-two went on to reveal she had almost missed the exciting event – as she had mistaken her invitation letter for an unpaid bill. ‘I thought ‘Oh God, he hasn’t paid something again!’
Helen was the picture of sophistication in a striking embroidered dress, just visible beneath her pale pink pleated dress coat.
Sporting minimal face make-up but adding a bright pink lip, Helen drew attention to her radiant complexion as she beamed widely for cameras.
