The Duchess of Cambridge has been voted Britain's Dream Bond Girl.
The British royal - formerly known as Kate Middleton - beat a bevy of famous beauties including actresses, singers and models to be crowned the public's ideal 007 sidekick in a nationwide poll by by gadget emporium www.menkind.co.uk.
Paul Kraftman, MenKind spokesman, said: ''We were surprised to see that Kate Middleton was the woman Britain most wanted to see getting to grips with Bond and his gadgets.
''Although her grandmother-in-law has proved that the royals are a dab-hand at super spy action, when Bond escorted her to the Olympics. It is Her Majesty's Secret Service, after all.''
The fifth star Britain would most like to see alongside Daniel Craig in the follow-up to new film 'Skyfall' is Cheryl Cole, who was just ahead of sultry actress Megan Fox.
British babe Kelly Brook came in seventh place, followed by a surprise entry from outspoken singer Jessie J.
