Catherine Zeta-Jones visited Buckingham Palace on Thursday to be made a Commander of the Order of the British Empire (CBE) by Charles, Prince Of Wales.
The actress and her husband Michael Douglas took their kids Dylan and Carys to the ceremony at Queen Elizabeth II’s royal residence, where Zeta-Jones was honored for her charity work and services to the film industry.

Prince Charles was photographed chatting to the Oscar winner as he handed her the medal, while Douglas, who recently battled throat cancer, beamed with pride.

When Zeta-Jones’ award was announced last summer, she gushed, “I am absolutely thrilled with this honor. As a British subject, I feel incredibly proud, at the same time it is overwhelming and humbling… And my mom and dad are delighted beyond belief.”
