Angelina Jolie and son get private tour of Buckingham Palace

By Bang

Angelina Jolie and her 15-year-old son Maddox were given a private tour of Buckingham Palace on Tuesday evening - but they didn't bump into any members of the royal family.

The 41-year-old actress' visit to London will certainly be one she'll never forget as she and 15-year-old Maddox were allowed to roam around Queen Elizabeth's home - but neither of them are believed to have met any members of the royal family.

The brunette beauty - who also has children Pax, 11, Zahara, 12, Shiloh, 10, and eight-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox with her estranged husband Brad Pitt - and her son were spotted climbing into a car from their hotel and then making their way to the lavish property before being allowed through the iron gates of the palace, according to MailOnline.

Buckingham Palace is not yet open to members of the public but tours of its State Rooms will take place from 9:30am to 7:30pm from July 22 to August 31, before it'll reopen to tourists from September 1 to October 1.

Earlier in the day, the 'Maleficient' star made her first appearance at the London School of Economics' (LSE) Centre for Women, Peace and Security in her role as a visiting professor to talk to students about her work as United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees and as the co-founder of the Preventing Sexual Violence Initiative, and admitted that she was riddled with nerves before her speech.

She said at the time: "I'm a little nervous, feeling butterflies. I hope I do well. This is very important to me."

A spokesperson from LSE added: "Angelina Jolie spoke to a class of students taking the postgraduate course 'Women, Peace and Security,' as part of her role as visiting professor in practice in the Centre for Women, Peace and Security. Miss Jolie spoke about her experience and what has motivated her work as UNHCR special envoy and as co-founder of the Preventing Sexual Violence Initiative, and took questions from the class."

Angelina previously launched the one-year MSc course on women, peace and security alongside Britain's former foreign secretary, William Hague.
