Angelina Jolie Made Honourary Dame By The Queen
The actress received the damehood for her campaigning against sexual violence and services to UK foreign policy...
Angelina Jolie has been made an honorary dame by the Queen at a private ceremony today, as real and Hollywood royalty collided.
The Malificent actress was joined by hubby Brad Pitt and their six kids at the reception at Buckingham Palace, though they weren't included in any of the official photographs.
A spokesman from the Palace said: 'The audience itself between Miss Jolie and the Queen was private. Her Majesty presented her with the insignia in its box. Mr Pitt and the rest of the family were introduced to the Queen afterwards, however.'
It was revealed in June that Angelina was to be given the award in recognition for her campaigning to end sexual violence, with the actress at the time saying: "To receive an honour related to foreign policy means a great deal to me, as it is what I wish to dedicate my working life to.
"Working with survivors of rape is an honour in itself. I know that succeeding in our goals will take a lifetime, and I am dedicated to it for all of mine."
