In their first public appearance since Angelina's split with husband Brad Pitt, the Jolie-Pitt children - Maddox 15, Pax, 13, Zahara 11, Shiloh 10 and eight-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne – looked to be in good spirits as they visited the Cambodian King Norodon Sihamoni at the Royal Palace on Saturday.

Maddox grinned and waved to the camera while looking smart in a suit and tie, while Pax and Shiloh were also spotted smiling while standing with Angelina. In another snap, the Tomb Raider star's youngest daughter Vivienne can be seen clad in a chic pair of black dungarees with her sister Zahara, who wore a long black dress. The upcoming film, which is based on Loung Ung's memoir on the Khmer Rouge Killing Fields, included both Maddox and Pax in the production. Angelina spoke about their involvement in the film, adding that Cambodia-born Maddox was "happy to be back in his country".

She told the Guardian: "He was the one who just called it and said he was ready and that he wanted to work on it, which he did. He read the script, helped with notes, and was in the production meetings." During a press conference, she said: "I read Loung's book many years ago. It helped to open my eyes to what was going on the world. I wanted to tell the story to through the eyes of the child's point of view, the love of a family, to show the beauty of the country and understand what Maddox's parents may have gone through."
