Queen Elizabeth II made Angelina Jolie an honorary dame during a private meeting Friday to honor the actress' humanitarian work.

In a ceremony at Buckingham Palace, the queen bestowed the honor for Jolie's work against sexual violence in war zones and her services to British foreign policy, The Associated Press reported.

The decision to grant it was announced in June when Jolie co-chaired a conference in London aimed at curbing war-related sexual violence. She worked closely with former British Foreign Minister William Hague on that conference.

The 39-year-old Jolie has drawn praise from many world figures for her work on behalf of refugees and victims of sexual violence.

Jolie recently starred in "Maleficent" and married longtime partner Brad Pitt.

Twitter felt Jolie's damehood was appropriate.
