Olivia Colman has missed the opportunity to come face to face with the monarch she plays in The Crown by Netflix.
The Oscar winner received her CBE today at Buckingham Palace, but instead of meeting the queen, she received her prize from the Princess Royal.
The 45-year-old, who was made a CBE for her drama services, smiled and greeted palace staff when she left the ceremony, but refused to talk to reporters.
Colman, who received the honor under her real name Sarah Sinclair, wore a tailor-made Prince of Wales-checked coat from Emilia Wickstead in the Autumn Winter 2019 fabric for the ceremony.

The Crown returns on November 17 and sees Colman replacing Claire Foy while the royal drama enters the turbulent new world of the 1960s and 1970s.
In a recently released trailer for the show, she is preparing for her silver jubilee and considering the impact she had during her reign, while saying in voice-over: & Ask yourself on days such as today on the throne what have I really achieved? & # 39;
Last week the queen was conscripted at Buckingham Palace and Canadian author Margaret Atwood presented an Order of Companions for services to literature.
The Queen, Prince of Wales, Duke of Cambridge and Princess Royal take turns exchanging each other.
Anne plays for the first time as a character in The Crown in the upcoming third series that is played by British actress Erin Doherty.
