Angelina Jolie’s humanitarian work hasn’t just been recognised in the US.

The actress was awarded honorary dame by Queen Elizabeth yesterday afternoon for her ongoing work, speaking against sexual violence in war zones earlier this year.

Jolie has been very vocal on this particular topic.

Her speech and her dedicated efforts for Britain didn’t go unnoticed as it was confirmed a couple of months back Jolie would be recognised with the honorary dame award.

At the time, Angie said: “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.”

And last night, Jolie and the Queen of England finally came face to face at Buckingham Palace where Angelina was awarded with the Honorary Dame Grand Cross of the Most Distinguished Order of St Michael and St George.

It’s an astounding award that’s very well deserved to the 39-year-old as she’s more or less dedicated more of her time to helping those in need than focusing on her own career.

Reports earlier this year claimed Angelina was planning retiring in the next couple of years so that she can spend more time with her family and focus all her efforts on her humanitarian work — especially with the sexual violence topic she’s been so passionate about.

Angelina Jolie continues to prove why Hollywood loves her so much.
