Actress and humanitarian Angelina Jolie can now add the letters GCMG after her name, after receiving an honour at Buckingham Palace from HM Queen Elizabeth II.
During her audience with the Queen, Jolie was presented with the insignia of an Honorary Dame Grand Cross of the Most Distinguished Order of St Michael and St George.
The Queen awarded Jolie the honour from the 1844 room at the palace, for her work fighting sexual violence and for services to UK foreign policy.
Jolie cannot be addressed as Dame, being a US citizen.
Jolie chose to wear Ralph & Russo to the Palace. She wore a dove grey, wool crepe peplum jacket and pencil skirt with cinching belt and silk chiffon bow neck tie, inspired by a tailored piece from their spring–summer 2014 couture collection.
She was recognized in the Diplomatic Service and Overseas Birthday 2014 honours’ list.
Jolie’s husband Brad Pitt and their six children were present. Buckingham Palace said Jolie spent 20 minutes with the Queen.
