Angelina and the entire Jolie-Pitt clan ventured over to Buckingham Palace as the actress was being honored by Queen Elizabeth II. Angelina received her Honorary Dame Grand Cross award in the Palace's 1844 room, while wearing the most appropriate lilac jacket and skirt, worn with a classy up-do. It matches the Queen's outfit in length and general pastel-ness almost perfectly. She receives this award for her work combatting sexual violence in devastated regions, and plans on continuing her efforts:
To receive an honor related to foreign policy means a great deal to me, as it is what I wish to dedicate my working life to. Working on PVSI and with survivors of rape is an honor in itself. I know that succeeding in our goals will take a lifetime, and I am dedicated to it for all of mine.
If this means Angelina Jolie and Kate Middleton are going to meet up to chat about raising babies soon, the internet might actually break.
Bask in Angelina's grace as she plants her hand on her chest at the sight of the award.
