It was just a typical Friday morning for Angelina Jolie. She woke up, put on a suit, head over to Buckingham Palace and was granted an honorary damehood by the Queen.

While Jolie made it look effortless, we imagine a lot of thought went into her outfit for the occasion. She chose a light grey skirt suit from Ralph & Russo's spring 2014 collection -- a choice that was appropriate not only because it had major Kate Middleton vibes, but also because the brand's atelier is in Britain and it recently became the first-ever British company to be granted haute couture status. It also features the Queen's preferred long hem length.

Jolie, who is one of the house's most famous clients alongside Beyoncé, accessorized with grey peep-toe pumps and simple pearl earrings, with her hair elegantly pinned up in what looks like a chignon. Somehow, she simultaneously looked sophisticated, demure, humble and badass. And now she has a royal title. Congrats on having just about everything in life, Angelina Jolie.
