We've always known Joan Collins was quite a dame; now it's official! Queen Elizabeth II has recognized Collins with the female equivalent of knighthood.
The Dynasty and Guiding Light star will now be referred to as Dame Joan Collins. She received the honor due to her extensive charity work, reports the Associated Press.
Collins said it was "humbling to receive this level of recognition from my queen and country, and I am thrilled and truly grateful." Congrats, Dame Joan!
