Kate Middleton is one of the world's most elegant women. However, when it comes to her job as a mom of two small children, Kate isn't afraid to put her foot down when she sees fit. She may be a trend-setting duchess, but she's also an awesome role model for moms. Especially busy moms up to their ears in small children. We've all got a lot to balance on the daily, and no one seems to have more under control than Kate. 


Kate and William aren't out to raise entitled royal kids who think the world is their oyster. That's why Kate isn't afraid to throw down in public when her little darlings act less than perfectly acceptable.

She's the perfect balance of calm, cool, and TOTALLY. IN. CHARGE. We think there's a lot to be learned by watching the duchess, who, let's face it, is always simultaneously balancing her job and her kids when it comes to the long list of royal events her family has to attend. No matter who wakes up on the wrong side of the bed. No matter who is irritated with his little sister. No matter who's approaching the hour of tantrum. And no matter how much sleep mom didn't get last night. Just like in our own lives, the show must always go on, despite it all (just be glad we don't have thousands of people watching every move we make).

Check out all the times Kate Middleton made sure to keep George and Charlotte in line.
