of his life today when he was honored by the Queen with his OBE at Windsor Castle?

The actor looked dapper as he stood next to to his stunning wife Hannah.

The 34-year-old, who has a baby daughter called Iris with his wife Hannah Bagshawe, said being a parent was "wonderful", adding: "Except she does have the habit of knowing when you have a big day, like today. "And she was up until four in the morning, so both my wife and I came today with matchsticks under our eyes. Other than that she is on cracking form." 
Redmayne was named in the Queen's Birthday Honours list in June 2015 - a career-defining year for the star in which he picked up a best actor Oscar for his portrayal of Professor Stephen Hawking in The Theory Of Everything. On receiving his honour, he said: "It was absolutely wonderful. Also being with such extraordinary people, the whole experience is incredibly humbling and also getting to be in Windsor Castle is breathtaking, around Christmas as well with all the decorations."

Eddie and Hannah attended the launch of 'The Reindeer 2016'

Yesterday evening they went to the dinner that launched this year's 2 day immersive Christmas feast.

Sarabande: The Lee Alexander McQueen Foundation have teamed up with Bistrotheque in what could be the collaboration of the year. They are hosting The Reindeer, a 2 day immersive Christmas feast and it’s set to be a dinner like no other. With four courses, including smoked goats cheese, roast beef and fermented apple sorbet, along with paired Ketel One cocktails, (x)
A specially created fang-shaped bar takes centre stage at the venue, which has been decked out with 'wildlife gems' and an illuminated ceiling installation hung with 'knitted leather sculptural forms'. We're not sure what it'll look like but with the McQueen foundation involved it's bound to be impressive. After all, the whole ethos behind Sarabande is to support the UK's creative talent and all proceeds raised will go to the charity. (x)

The opening party for Bistrotheque’s pop-up Reindeer restaurant doubled as a Narnia-like revelation of Sarabande: The Lee Alexander McQueen Foundation. Once they arrived at a large ex-industrial building in the East End of London—where McQueen was brought up—guests pushed their way through a fur coat–lined “wardrobe” to discover that McQueen’s haven for creative and cash-strapped talent lay inside. (x)

Eddie Redmayne family post update

In my earlier post I confused Eddie's half sister Eugenie Redmayne with Annabel Redmayne  (based on sources from the web). Since then I learned, that Annabel is Charlie's wife. Annabel was photographed with Eddie and Hannah at the Chelsea Flower Show in 2013. Even people who knew that Eugenie is Eddie's half-sister used Annabel's photo, which corroborate my confusion. To make clear who's who I made a new research. It turned out that what I wrote was wrong, and I fixed it in the first post as well.
