Actor Henry Winkler was given an honorary O.B.E. (Order of the British Empire) in a ceremony at the British Embassy in Washington, D.C.

The citation reads: "Henry Winkler, the well-known American actor and director, has been made an Honorary Officer of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire (OBE) by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II in recognition of his services to children with dyslexia and special educational needs."

Sharon Osbourne Says the Queen Was Not Amused by Ozzy's MusicHaving met the British royal family, Sharon Osbourne of 'The Talk' is probably in a better position than most to say what the royals are really like. On 'The Early Show' (weekdays, 7AM ET on CBS), she described the younger members of the royal family as "approachable," but said the older generation tends to be a bit more "old-school."

"William and Harry and Camilla are not what you would think. You can have a real good laugh with them. They're very, very approachable people," said Osbourne, adding that Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip are "what you would imagine. They're very old-school, very traditional."

And, Sherri Shepherd, as William, and Elisabeth Hasselbeck, as Middleton, engaged in a lengthy make-out session that was more unsettling than anything else.

Shepherd and Hasselbeck made loud kissing sounds, embraced and pushed their masked faces together in a semblance of kissing, giggling hysterically all the while. Meanwhile, Whoopi Goldberg, as Queen Elizabeth II, looked on, and she was not amused.

Snoop Dogg Talks Prince William's Song on 'Lopez'To say that the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton will be an extremely dignified affair is surely an understatement. But must the future king's bachelor party be that way? Apparently Queen Elizabeth II doesn't think so.

On 'Lopez Tonight' (weeknights, 12AM ET on TBS), Snoop Dogg claimed that the Queen phoned the rapper and requested "somethin' special for her grandkid. So why not? Let me do it. I'm the best one when it comes to throwin' parties anyway."

'Wet' is the result: a special anthem for the royal "stag" party. He explained, "I want him to have a little bit of fun before he get married ... to see all the girls that you gonna be able to see before you lie down with that one. And enjoy yourself."

George Lopez then asked if Snoop would perform a few lines in the studio, and he obliged.

Simon Pegg, 'The Tonight Show with Jay Leno' (VIDEO)We have ceremony for our leaders in the United States, but it's a much more serious matter when dealing with royalty. So it's quite different to hear about all the understood social etiquette in the UK should one get the opportunity to meet the Queen. On 'The Tonight Show' (Weeknights, 11:35PM ET on NBC), Simon Pegg revealed how those social expectations led to a very awkward encounter.

"I thought she had broken," he said of Queen Elizabeth II. She came to the Royal Premiere of 'The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader,' in which Pegg voiced a mouse. But when she came up to him, she simply stood in front of him for a while and stared at him.
