Yet she remains humble, even insisting to the Queen that being a mother to her 12 year old daughter Mia and her 8 year old son Joe is her most cherished achievement. In a recent meeting with herself and the queen, when the Queen, who has four children herself, asked Kate if she enjoyed being an actress, the star replied: ‘Yes, I like it but not as much as being a mother’ – and the Queen agreed, insisting, ‘It’s the best job’. We think Kate is a great mum and deserves only the best! Please vote for her in our poll above if you think she is a worthy winner.
