"The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge met with Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie Pitt at Kensington Palace on Friday afternoon," a Kensington Palace spokesman told Us Weekly magazine.
"They discussed their shared interest in combating the illegal wildlife trade," the spokesperson added.
After months of coordinating, the two power couples met for the first time.
Brangelina had flown to London earlier in the morning so Jolie could attend a lunch at the Foreign & Commonwealth Office on Monday as part of her work on UK foreign policy and her ongoing campaign to end war zone sexual violence.
Later, the UN Special Envoy was joined by Pitt and they headed to Kensington Palace for the informal meeting.
According to the insider, Middleton and Prince William were "really excited" about the afternoon tea, with a source adding that the royal couple, who were joined by Prince George, waited outside their apartment to greet the Hollywood couple.
"Brad and Angelina spent much longer with the Duke and Duchess than planned. They ended up staying for almost a few hours," the source added.
