The Hollywood beauty and her eldest child Maddox Chivan Jolie-Pitt, 15, were swept through the palace gates in a black people carrier.

It came at the end of a busy day in London for the Lara Croft: Tomb raider star, as hours earlier she gave her first lecture as a visiting professor at the London School of Economics. In the evening Ange, 41, walked out of her hotel dressed head-to-toe in black and smiled at her adopted son trailing behind.

Moments later their car was spotted driving through the wrought-iron palace gates a short distance away. They received a highly unusual private tour of the Queen’s official residence, according to reports. No members of the royal family were present for the visit. Normally the palace is open for tours only for a few weeks in July and August.

Earlier yesterday Angelina — who is divorcing her husband Brad Pitt — admitted she had “butterflies” before taking a lesson with postgraduate students at the LSE’s Centre for Women, Peace and Security. She told them about her experience in the field as a UN special envoy and how sexual violence is used as a tool of war. Before the lecture she told the Evening Standard: “I’m a little nervous, feeling butterflies.

“I hope I do well. This is very important to me.”

Afterwards student Tazeen Dhanani said on Twitter she did “wonderfully” while Alana Foster said the lecture was “incredible”.
