A prestigious honour was bestowed upon Angelina Jolie during a private ceremony on 10 October 2014, as Jolie was made an honorary dame by Queen Elizabeth II. Presented with the “Insignia of an Honorary Dame Grand Cross of the Most Distinguished Order of St. Michael and St. George” for her work fighting against the use of sexual violence as a weapon during periods of war, the film star graciously accepted. Well known through out the world for her philanthropical work aside from her very successful acting career, earlier this year, Jolie hosted a global summit to end sexual violence during conflict in London alongside the British Foreign Secretary William Hague.
