Queen Elizabeth II honored Angelina Jolie with the honorary title of dame this morning, The Telegraph reports. The Queen received the Oscar-winning actress and humanitarian at Buckingham Palace, bestowing the title for Jolie's work to end sexual violence in war zones. Because Jolie is an American citizen, she can't use the title, though it's rumored that she will become a citizen of Namibia, which is part of the British commonwealth, in order to use the title to promote her charity work.
