The Duchess is one of 10 celebrities in the running for the UK based title, joining the likes of Victoria Beckham and singer Adele, who is also set to give birth later this year.
Catherine, who is due in July, has been laying low since January due to extreme morning sickness, but ventured out earlier this week to attend a function at Hope House residential centre in the UK.
When asked on site if she was nervous about giving birth, Catherine said it would be “unnatural” if she wasn’t.
"She's human, just like all of us," commented a bystander.
But despite her nerves, the general consensus is that the Duchess will be the ideal mum.
“Kate is poised for mothering: she exudes happiness, self-confidence, and stability,” commented the Telegrah UK. “Over the past two years in the job of Queen-in-waiting, she has shown the world, the Windsors and above all herself, that she is capable of industry and diligence.
"Any little hiccups Kate may have had with her parents, or siblings, have long ago been worked out, leaving the Duchess a wonderful emotional legacy, that she in turn can bestow upon her newborn.”The Duchess has a heavy workload to look forward to however, with celebrities such as fellow Mother of the Year contender Victoria Beckham
admitting work/life balance is difficult in the spotlight.
"There are quite a few video conferences at 5 a.m. with me in my dressing gown, holding the baby," Beckham told WWD. "For me it's no different than it is for a lot of women out there. It's like juggling glass balls."
