Pamela Anderson is now a royal countess!

From Baywatch to royalty

From "Baywatch" To Royalty: Pamela Anderson Is Now A Countess!

She's an actress, activist - and now you can add, countess.

Pamela Anderson has been honoured with a brand new name: Imperial Countess of Giglio - which means she has been knighted.

The Baywatch star was rewarded with the title for her lengthy work to protect marine life.

The 47-year-old was given the honour by self-declared royal Prince Stefan of Montenegro in a luxury-filled ceremony in Genoa, Italy on Saturday.

Giglio is an area of Montenegro which hasn't had a monarchy since 1918.

The former Baywatch star chose a figure-hugging white dress for the occasion, which featured a plunging V-neck, reports the Daily Mirror.

Her sons also knighted

She was spotted arriving at the afternoon event in a silver car before being led into the residence.

She took to her official Pamela Anderson Foundation Instagram to share the moment, saying simply: 'Santa Margherita, Italy Countessa de' Gigli.'

In May, the actress explained to Ellen DeGeneres: "The prince is a big animal fan and has loved all the work I've done with animals," before saying that she did think receiving the title was "very bizarre".

Pamela's sons Brandon, 18, and Dylan, 17, are also receiving knighthoods for their charity work.

The star is the face of the latest Peta (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) campaign against water waste in the dairy trade.

Anderson has regularly stripped off for Peta campaigns on several previous occasions, including posing naked in the window of Stella McCartney's London shop in 2011 in a protest against animal cruelty in fashion.
