Catherine Zeta-Jones Loves Catherine, Princess of Wales

One Catherine is a fan of another Catherine. Actress Catherine Zeta-Jones is very excited about the new Princess of Wales, Kate Middleton (who goes by Catherine, Princess of Wales). Following Prince William and Princess Kate's first visit to Wales as Prince and Princess of Wales, Zeta-Jones took to her Instagram to express her love for the new princess.

"I love our Princess of Wales❤️," Zeta-Jones wrote, "I love our Welsh National Costume.❤️" She shared a photo of Princess Kate posing with a young girl in a traditional Welsh outfit.

The day after Queen Elizabeth died, when King Charles gave his first speech as monarch, he made his son, William, and daughter-in-law, Kate, the new Prince and Princess of Wales. "I am proud to create [William] Prince of Wales, Tywysog Cymru, the country whose title I have been so greatly privileged to bear during so much of my life and duty," Charles said. "With Catherine beside him, our new Prince and Princess of Wales will, I know, continue to inspire and lead our national conversations, helping to bring the marginal to the centre ground where vital help can be given."

Princess Kate becomes just the third woman in history to get the Princess of Wales title at the same time as her husband—and Zeta-Jones is clearly a big fan.

Zeta-Jones was born in Swansea, Wales to a Welsh father and an Irish Catholic mother. She grew up in the area, and speaks Welsh. During her acceptance speech for best supporting actress at the Oscars in 2002, she declared, "To everybody in Swansea, south Wales—I love you."

In 2011, she was made a Commander of the British Empire (CBE) by King Charles, then the Prince of Wales, at Buckingham Palace.

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