CATHERINE ZETA JONES, the Welsh actress and wife of MICHAEL DOUGLAS, was made a CBE during a ceremony at Buckingham Palace this morning, reports BBC News.The 41-year-old OSCAR winning actress was honoured for her services to the film industry and for her charity work. Jones was accompanied by her husband and their two children Dylan and Carys. The actress first rose to prominence starring alongside DAVID JASON in the British television series 'The Darling Buds of May' but she later became an established Hollywood star, appearing in blockbusters such as 'Chicago', 'Traffic' and 'The Mask of Zorro'. When the announcement was made last summer, the actress said she was "absolutely thrilled", adding, "As a British subject I feel incredibly proud. At the same time it is overwhelming and humbling".

Other individuals honoured in this morning's ceremony included the veteran actor BURT KWOUK, best known for his appearances in three JAMES BOND films.
