On November 16, Prince Charles personally bestowed the Order and awarded British actor Thomas Hardy the rank of commander of the British Empire.

The charismatic actor has won multiple awards and is best known for his roles in Bronson, Venome and Taboo, for which he was once again honored.
Media representatives have recorded an important moment in order transmission. The Hollywood actor beamed with joy and talked to a member of the royal family. It can also be seen in the pictures that Prince Charles has clearly made a statement of honor to Tom.
Interestingly, since 2010, Tom Hardy has been the ambassador of the Charity Foundation of Prince Charles and is friends with his younger son Harry. He and his wife Charlotte Riley were among the guests six months ago at the wedding of Prince Harry and Megan Markle.
The mission of the British Empire is often presented to artists, and citizens of other countries can also get the award. It was founded in 1917 by King George V. The Order itself consists of five classes: the Knight or the Lady of the Great Cross, the Knight Commander or Commander, Commander, Officer and Gentleman. But only the owners of the first two titles have a knighthood.
Queen Elizabeth II was promoted to commander in 2015 Benedict Cumberbatch. Formerly Anthony Hopkins and Sean Connery were among the Lords of the Order.
