Catherine Zeta-Jones, an actress known for her work with a plethora of famous faces, was born in September of 1969 in Wales. She came from a working-class background, with her father managing a candy business and her mother working as a seamstress while she was growing up. At a very early age, Catherine Zeta-Jones began her acting career by starring in school performances while she was still in school. In the end, she triumphed in a junior talent competition in her home town, which helped her get some fame. She was a member of a young girl’s dance company that had frequent trips to London, and she even won a national tap dancing competition when she was only entering her early teenage years.
She was just 15 years old when she made the decision to give up going to school full-time and pursue her ambition of being an actor instead. She relocated to London, where she put in a lot of effort, and it ultimately paid off since she was able to make her debut in a film. Her acting career was launched in earnest with the 1990 film “1001 Nights,” in which she made her first appearance. Since then, she has appeared in a seemingly limitless variety of roles.
“The Darling Buds of May,” a historical drama in which Zeta-Jones starred as Mariette Charlton, the oldest daughter of the Larkin family, launched her career in the United Kingdom at the beginning of the 1990s and catapulted her to stardom. Even though she may not have been very well known in the United States at the time, she was able to have a significant impact in that country by the end of the decade because to her leading part in “The Mask of Zorro,” in which she was needed to wield a sword and demonstrate incredible talent.
She is most recognized for her roles in the films “Oceans Twelve,” “The Terminal,” and “No Reservations,” among many others that are considered to be cinematic classics. In the year 2000, she tied the knot with Michael Douglas, and the couple has since been blessed with two children. The celebrity said, in addition to the fact that she is an icon in her own right, that she is a fanboy of another extremely well-known worldwide lady. It was disclosed by Zeta-Jones that she has a strong admiration for Kate Middleton, who holds the title of Princess of Wales.
Zeta-Jones published this photograph only about a week after she honored the late Queen Elizabeth II’s passing and shared a snapshot of the monarch who had just passed away. She wrote the words “May you rest in peace Ma’am” as the caption for the picture.
Both of Zeta-postings Jones’s were quite popular, garnering numerous views. Over 14,000 people have liked the picture of the “Children’s Princess,” and many others have commented on it. Someone on social media commented, “So very proud of our new Princess of Wales such a wonderful shot,” referring to the new royal family member. Someone another commented on the post that was so popular, saying, “I agree with you on both points!”
The picture that was uploaded earlier of the legendary monarch who passed away has received over 11,000 likes and many encouraging remarks as well. The overwhelming majority of people on social media had favorable opinions of the royal family. Someone posted a remark with the hashtags “#myqueen” and “somanytears.” An further supporter of the royal family and of Catherine Zeta-Jones left a remark on the article, saying, “She is already terribly lost beyond words but most worthy of her rest in peace.”
The reason why Catherine Zeta-Jones is such a big supporter of the royal family is multifaceted. Not only does she hail from Wales, but the Welsh royal family has also recognized her for the contributions she has made to both the entertainment business and charitable causes. Back in 2011, she was honored by being made a Commander of the British Empire.
Because of their new titles as Prince and Princess of Wales, Prince William and Kate Middleton visited to Catherine Zeta-Jones’ hometown in Wales after the queen’s death in September. Prior to the queen’s passing, they were known as the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. The prince and princess were met on their way to Swansea by a group of youngsters from the 1st Eastside Boys Brigade and Girls Association. They were on their way to Swansea at the time.
According to Wales Online, Zeta-Jones said how much she missed her home nation when she was on a journey back to the United Kingdom in 2019, during which she visited her own country. “What I miss about Swansea is the immediacy of my family and being able to say things like ‘here is where we used to do that,'” she added. The actor who had previously won an award continued by saying, “I miss being able to appreciate the beauty of Swansea and the comfort of running into childhood friends.” She continued by saying, “I’m quite honoured and humbled, and I’m very delighted to share it with my family here in Wales, as well as my friends and mentors over the years.”
People reports that when the royal couple was touring Zeta-Jones’ homeland, Prince William voiced his desire to learn more about the culture and language of the country. “He discussed studying Welsh and shared some Welsh words he’s attempting to do,” said Rev. Steven Bunting of Wales. “He shared some Welsh phrases he’s trying to do.” When referring to the prince, Bunting said that “he is pouring himself into the new position.” He confidently continued, “The fact that they’ve come directly here on day one tells it all,” which was an interesting take on the sentence.
Given that Catherine Zeta-Jones has such a strong affinity for both the United Kingdom and its royal family, it is reasonable to conclude that she is pleased with the contributions that Prince Charles and Catherine, Princess of Wales, are making to the community in which she was raised.
