It's no secret that his charming ways make for the perfect ladies' man.
But on Friday, Idris Elba was only out to impress one special woman in his life - his mother.
Succeeding with his efforts, the 43-year-old made her mum 'very happy' as she accompanied him to Buckingham Palace where he was awarded an OBE.
In the shot, which Elba uploaded to Twitter as he thanked the palace for having him, the duo make for an endearing portrait as they stand side by side.
The actor gushed in his message: '@BritishMonarchy Made my *Mum very happy today!!'
Dressed to impress for her son's big day, Eve opted for traditional clothing complete with a headtie.
Ahead of the royal event, the British actor also tweeted a picture of his outfit for the occasion.
Looking as dapper as ever, Idris dressed in a dark suit, white shirt and black tie teamed with a pair of leather shoes.
Modelling in front of a luxury black car, he wrote: 'Flying the East End flag at Buckingham Palace today!!! OBE Day ... How does the boy look? Feeling Proppa...:)'
Inside the palace, the Duke of Cambridge was on hand to congratulate Idris as he was awarded with an OBE for services to drama.
