Catherine was having a proud mother moment 

The stunning photo of the siblings hugging on a street, presumed to be in Rhode Island, where Dylan attends Brown University, comes just days after Catherine admitted she was in tears helping Carys to pack. 

Posting to her 3.8 million followers, the Hollywood actress said the big milestone had prompted her to go over old family videos.

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

Carys recently graduated from high school 

Catherine wrote: "My daughter Carys prepares for college!!! Very cute alert!! The road to higher education begins on the bathroom floor, with limited teeth, (thus the lisp) and a passion for books."

"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.

Carys' move to college comes three months after her graduation from high school, which was attended by her parents and Dylan too.
