According to the insider for the magazine, Middleton and Prince William were “really excited” about the afternoon tea with Brangelina. Apparently, they were so excited that they waited outside their apartment 1A home to greet Brad and Angie.
Seriously, are they allowed to do that? Protocol and all…

Brad and Angelina Jolie came bearing a gift for little Charlotte, who was born in May. Although the Pitt-Jolie children are in London with their parents, the couple left the kids behind.
“Everyone got on splendidly,” an Us Weekly source said. “Brad and Angelina spent much longer with the Duke and Duchess than planned. They ended up staying for almost a few hours.”

Sounds like a pretty good way to spend a quiet Friday afternoon while in London.
It’s very proper for the foursome to meet. After all, Queen Elizabeth II made Jolie an Honorary Dame Commander — basically the female equivalent of knighthood — at a private Buckingham Palace ceremony in October 2014, for her humanitarian work.
Does that mean the royal couple addressed her as Lady Angelina Jolie?
