Angelina Jolie reveals the lessons learnt from Queen Elizabeth


Angelia Jolie is a big follower of Queen Elizabeth. Calling her as a ‘really lovely lady’, Academy Award-winning actress has heaped praise for the British Monarch.

In a new documentary titled ‘The Queen’s Green Planet’, Angelina Jolie said she was inspired by the British monarch.

The Queen told her to educate her children – Maddox (16), Pax (14), Zahara (12), Shiloh (11) and nine-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox -about the significance of forest conservation.

On a visit to Namibia, Angelina explained, “For us to come here it’s important to plant a tree,’ that’s the biggest message I can teach my kids, and it’s something that they’ve learned from Her Majesty.”

“My children ask me, ‘Why is it so important to her?’. You know when you sit up at night in a tent with your kids and they say, ‘Why does the Queen of England care about planting trees in Africa?’”

‘You know really, you don’t know her, you can’t understand all that it means to be a queen and all that. But you try to say, ‘You know she’s just this really lovely lady who really cares about people around the world, and she really cares about the future”.

“Also she wants your grand kids and her grand kids to be able to be running around, enjoying nature and other cultures, and the importance of other cultures. She thinks that really matters and I agree with her”.

The new documentary solely focuses on the Queen’s Commonwealth Canopy.

It is an initiative begun in 2015 as a network of forest conservation programs throughout the Commonwealth of Nations. It will air in the United Kingdom on April 16, 2018.

Jolie and Queen Elizabeth have crossed paths before.

Queen Elizabeth made the maleficent actress an honorary dame in London in the year 2014. It was in honour of her efforts to raise global awareness of violence against women. It was established in 2012.

Jolie opened up about what she hopes her children will learn from her 17 years of working with refugees.

Jolie said: “I tell my daughters, ‘What sets you apart is what you are willing to do for others. Anyone can put on a dress and makeup. It’s your mind that will define you”.

“Find out who you are, what you think, and what do you and want to stand for. Then just fight for others to have those same freedoms. A life of service is indeed worth living”.
