Royal Friendships That You Never Hear About

The “Maleficent” actor is known for her humanitarianism, so it was understandable that she bonded with Camilla, Queen Consort, over a meaningful cause. In 2014, the then-duchess was deeply moved by her visits to rape crisis centers in England. At the time, Angelina Jolie was serving as U.N. Special Envoy and had co-chaired the Global Summit to End Sexual Violence in Conflict, so she made for the perfect addition to Camilla’s gathering. Jolie met Camilla and other key figures in the sector at Clarence House, where they discussed raising awareness around global sexual violence, People reported.

Jolie has collaborated with more than one royal in her philanthropic efforts. She worked with the late Queen Elizabeth II on an important conservation initiative. The Queen’s Commonwealth Canopy’s goal to rescue forests led Jolie to travel to Namibia with her children, where they replaced dying trees with saplings. The initiative is featured on “The Queen’s Green Planet,” in which Jolie is quoted as saying,”[The queen is] just this really lovely lady who really cares about people around the world, and she really cares about the future, and she wants your grandkids and her grandkids to be able to be running around, enjoying nature and other cultures, and the importance of other cultures.”

Jolie has long been an activist and has never failed to impress the royal family with her efforts, leading Elizabeth to present Jolie with an honorary damehood in 2014. While her friendships with the royals may be more professional than personal, she has nurtured these relationships for years.
