LONDON — The Queen has hon­oured cam­paign­ing ac­tress An­gelina Jolie in a Buck­ing­ham Palace cer­e­mony. The Queen made Jolie an honorary dame for her work against sex­ual vi­o­lence in war zones and her ser­vices to Bri­tish for­eign pol­icy. She re­ceived the award Fri­day dur­ing a pri­vate meet­ing with the Queen. The decision to grant it was an­nounced in June when Jolie cochaired a con­fer­ence in London aimed at curb­ing war-re­lated sex­ual vi­o­lence. She worked closely with for­mer Bri­tish for­eign min­is­ter Wil­liam Hague on that con­fer­ence. The 39-year-old Jolie has drawn praise from many world fig­ures for her work on be­half of refugees and vic­tims of sex­ual vi­o­lence. Jolie re­cently mar­ried long­time part­ner Brad Pitt and starred in the film Malef­i­cent.


An­gelina Jolie is made an honorary dame by Queen El­iz­a­beth II.
