Although the meetup also could have served as a high-profile playdate, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and the Jolie-Pitt brood did not attend.

Pitt, Jolie and their children are reportedly in London for a lunch at the Foreign & Commonwealth Office as part of Jolie's work to end war zone sexual violence.
