The family holiday comes shortly after Catherine opened up about her decision to remove her children from the Hollywood spotlight. In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, the 49-year-old explained: "They've kind of been removed from the crazy world of Hollywood or even the crazy world of Manhattan. The teenagers here in Manhattan, there's a maturity that comes too quick I think." She added: "We've kind of shielded them away, but they're incredibly mature for their tender years. They get it."

The star then went on to comment on how she's lucky to have children who understand her decision, adding: "That's just a thing [where] I think that I just got lucky." Earlier on in the year, Catherine discussed her family life with her husband, telling Town & Country magazine: "What I instilled in my kids, and I'm very, very proud of it, is manners. There's nothing worse than a privileged kid without manners. I drilled it into them like boot camp."
