Catherine Zeta-Jones was made a Commander of the Order of the British Empire by Prince Charles Thursday at Buckingham Palace.

The Oscar-winning actress, who was accompanied by her husband, Michael Douglas, and their children  Dylan and Carys, was recognized for her contribution to the film industry and to charity in last year's Queen's Birthday Honours.

"As a British subject I feel incredibly proud," she said. "At the same time it is overwhelming and humbling."

Veteran actor Burt Kwouk, known for playing Kato in the Pink Panther films and appearing in three James Bond movies, was named an Officer of the Order of the British Empire.
