Britain’s Queen Elizabeth makes actress Angelina Jolie a Dame

LONDON: Britain’s Queen Elizabeth made actress Angelina Jolie an honorary Dame at a private ceremony at Buckingham Palace on Friday in recognition of her campaigning to end violence in war zones and for services to UK foreign policy.

The queen presented Oscar-winning Jolie, who is special envoy to the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), with the Insignia of an Honorary Dame Grand Cross of the Most Distinguished Order of St Michael and St George.

Dressed in a pale suit, she shook hands with the queen during an audience in the 1844 Room, named for the year when Russian Emperor Nicholas I made a state visit.
