"Carys is packing her bags and I am looking at old videos, don't tell her I posted this," she wrote alongside a crying face emoji.

Catherine became emotional whilst watching the video

The 57-second clip that accompanies the post shows a young Carys sat on her parents' bathroom floor whilst talking about "artic babies", including a "very, very cute" tiger, a fox and two polar bears.

Carys' move to college comes three months after her graduation, which was attended by her proud parents and her brother Dylan, 20.

Taking to Instagram back in May, Catherine shared a gorgeous new family photo to mark the special occasion.
