Queen Elizabeth II issued the raddest royal decree ever on Friday when she made Angelina Jolie an honorary dame!
Woo hoo!!! A real life queen honoring an actress who just played an evil Disney queen? This is soooo AH-Mazing!!
While were sure QEII is a fan of Maleficent & the Tomb Raider movies and all of that, Angelina wasn't recognized for her on-screen accomplishments! She was honored because of her efforts to combat sexual violence in war zones. Talk about a real life hero!!!
Dames, by the way, are basically the female equivalents of knights and - according to historians and stuff - Angelina becomes the first American-born Hollywood actress to receive such a distinction!!
Unfortunately, since the 39-year-old Oscar-winner isn't actually a citizen of England or the British Commonwealth, she won't be allowed to use "dame" as her official title.
Aww! So sad!
Maybe Ang, who is in London now anyway, can use the new honorary title to get a discount on fish and chips??
