‘Working on the Preventing Sexual Violence Initiative and with survivors of rape is an honour in itself.
‘I know that succeeding in our goals will take a lifetime, and I am dedicated to it for all of mine.’
Jolie, who won an Oscar for Girl, Interrupted, was presented to the Queen along with her family inside the palace’s 1844 room.
The actress was recognised in the Diplomatic Service and Overseas Birthday 2014 Honours list.
