Catherine Zeta-Jones Given Royal Honor For Charity Work

Catherine Zeta-Jones and her family made a visit to Buckingham Palace today, where the actress received a royal honor from Prince Charles: you can now call her Catherine Zeta-Jones, CBE!

Zeta-Jones was invested as a Commander of the Order of the British Empire, the third-highest rank in the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire. So you can’t call her “Dame” yet, but it’s a start!

The Wales-born actress was honored both for her film work, which ranges from the movie musical “Chicago” to “Ocean’s Twelve” to “The Mask of Zorro,” and for her charity work. Zeta-Jones is involved with a number of humanitarian organizations, including many dedicated to helping children: she has contributed to the Worldwide Orphan’s Foundation, National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children, Global Missing Children’s Network, and multiple foundations to help fund children’s hospitals.

Zeta-Jones has recently run into some trouble with PETA, however, for wearing various furs and other animal-based clothing. Though she is greatly involved in an astounding number of humanitarian efforts, she does not appear to be involved with any animal rights organizations. She is, however, a nature lover and greatly enjoyed gardening (sometimes naked) while living in Bermuda.

Catherine was joined at the ceremony by her two children and her husband, Michael Douglas, who has been fighting throat cancer. Douglas, who is also heavily involved in humanitarian work through the Council on Foreign Relations, recently made an appearance at the Golden Globes and is recovering nicely.

So congratulations Catherine Zeta-Jones, CBE! You might not have the highest rank yet, but you’ll always be a Dame in our eyes.

There’s more than enough out their promoting the use of animals already- can’t animal rights activists agree to be the ones who say stop it and mean it?

These acts of intimidation and aggression don’t change public perspective on veganism for the better, and that’s the only thing that will help animals.
