Actress Catherine Zeta-Jones has received a royal honour
from Prince Charles at Buckingham Palace.
The Wales-born actress became a Commander of the Order
of the British Empire at the ceremony on Thursday, where she
was accompanied by husband Michael Douglas and their two
children Carys and Dylan.
Zeta-Jones, 41, said she was "very emotional and rather
nervous" to receive the honour, which was given for her
services to the film industry and her charity efforts.
She said "it was worth (it) to have Michael in good health to
be able to enjoy it with me."
Douglas has been fighting throat cancer.
Zeta-Jones said Prince Charles had expressed his sympathy and
was "happy to hear" that Douglas was recovering.
