Star Trek Into Darkness star Benedict Cumberbatch had a really awesome day yesterday and we need to talk about it.

OK! News: Who is this hot man? Five facts you need to know about Benedict Cumberbatch.

First of all, did you know that they held garden parties at Buckingham Palace? Just tons of people hanging out on the lawn? It's like a neighborhood summer barbecue, except black tie. A block party with fascinators.

Beloved British actor Benedict is seen here chatting with Prince Edward, brother of Prince Charles and future great uncle of the Royal Baby (that's gotta be a title, right?).

OK! News: Find out what Benedict's costars have to say about him!

He looked very sharp in his navy suit, but we wish he had really gone for it with a top hat and tails, too. Look at that beautiful little forehead curl!

How do you think a person gets invited to such a thing? We'll be on our very best behavior until the next one, promise! Queen Elizabeth II must be a big fan of Sherlock.

Are you a fan of Benedict? Have you seen Star Trek Into Darkness yet, and what did you think? Do you love a guy with an accent? Tell us in the comments below or tweet us @OKMagazine.
