So this is what happens when Hollywood royalty meets London royalty! Friday was a special day for Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie who were given the rare opportunity to meet with Prince William and Kate Middleton. “Yes, The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge met Mr. Brad Pitt and Mrs. Angelina Jolie-Pitt yesterday afternoon at Kensington Palace,” a spokesperson for the royal family confirmed to E! News. “They discussed their shared interest in combating the illegal wildlife trade.”
While we have no doubts that both power couples talked about causes near and dear to their hearts, we can’t help but imagine there was some chatter about Prince George and Princess Charlotte. In fact, according to Us Weekly, Pitt and Jolie didn’t arrive empty handed. The couple reportedly brought a gift to celebrate the arrival of Princess Charlotte. “Everyone got on splendidly,” a source told the publication. “Brad and Angelina spent much longer with the Duke and Duchess than planned. They ended up staying for almost a few hours.”
The afternoon tea time marks the first official meeting between the two couples. Everyone previously attended the 2014 BAFTA awards, but unfortunately were unable to cross paths. When Jolie was made an honorary dame back in October, however, she had the opportunity to meet Queen Elizabeth ll. As for what’s next for the Hollywood couple in London, it appears the actress will attend a lunch at the Foreign & Commonwealth Office on Monday as part of her ongoing campaign to end war zone sexual violence, reports eonline.com.
