43-year-old Emmy and SAG Award-winning Luther and Beasts of No Nation actor, Idris Elba, was on Friday made an Officer of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire, or OBE, at an investiture ceremony Prince William conducted at Buckingham Palace.

Elba was honoured for his services to drama.

Idris had in December been named an OBE recipient and was put on William’s grandmother Queen Elizabeth II’s annual New Year’s Honours List.

He posted on his Twitter page a photo of himself posing outside with his mother, Eve Elba.

“Made my *Mum very happy today!!” he wrote.

Congrats Elba!
