LONDON. Wales-born Hollywood star Catherine Zeta-Jones has been knighted by Prince Charles for her contribution to cinema and was made a Commander of the British Empire (CBE) in a ceremony here.
The 41-year-old actress and her husband Michael Douglas arrived at the Buckingham palace with their children Dylan and Carys for the ceremony, reported Daily Mail online.
The 'Mask of Zorro' star dressed for the occasion in a taupe skirt suit and a full hat complete with feathers.
Her 66-year-old husband, who recently overcame a cancer battle, was also suited and booted for the event. The family posed together after the ceremony, with their eight-year-old daughter Carys and 11-year-old son Dylan also dressed formally for the occasion.
The Swansea-born actress, who won an Oscar for her role as Velma Kelly in the 2002 film 'Chicago', received her award from the Prince of Wales during which they had a quick chat.
When the announcement of the award was made last summer she said, "I am absolutely thrilled with this honour. As a British subject, I feel incredibly proud, at the same time it is overwhelming and humbling."
