It's not every day you get to meet the Queen of England, and for Brad Pitt, his recent reception at Buckingham Palace for wife Angelina Jolie to be made an Honorary Dame Commander is a day he'll never forget.

"It was just a pleasure and certainly one for the books," the proud husband told Us Weekly at the London premiere of Fury on Sunday, October 19. "[It was] a wonderful afternoon for our family, a great honor for Angie and something we won’t forget," he added at the event which closed the 58th BFI London Film Festival in partnership with American Express, at the Odeon Leicester Square.

Pitt, Jolie, and their brood of six kids came face-to-face with Queen Elizabeth II in room 1844 of the monarch's London residence on Friday, Oct. 10. Jolie received the award in honor of her humanitarian work, in particular her efforts to combat sexual violence in war-torn regions around the world.

"To receive an honor related to foreign policy means a great deal to me, as it is what I wish to dedicate my working life to," Jolie said previously. "Working on PVSI and with survivors of rape is an honor in itself. I know that succeeding in our goals will take a lifetime, and I am dedicated to it for all of mine."

So now that Jolie's an Honorary Dame, does this mean she's the boss at home?

"Aaah, no," Pitt told Us, laughing. "We have our own pecking order at home!”
