Taking to her Instagram Stories, Carol proudly shared a couple of snapshots.

The first showed Katie, who looks so much like her stylish maths whiz mum, smiling as she sat in front of a red door holding on to her thesis.

Carol captioned it: "It's a @cambridgeuniversity 'thing' to have a photo next to the RED DOOR when you submit your PhD. So here's my girl doing hers," adding three red heart emojis.

Carol is clearly so proud of her daughter  

Last month, her son Cameron, 24, got his Master's degree from Dundee University, which was especially impressive considering his challenging experiences with education when he was younger.

As Carol shared on Instagram, Cameron sadly endured a childhood of "endless bullying" due to his learning difficulties.

"It's very hard for these kids," wrote Carol on the social media site.

"They get bullied and told they're 'odd' when really they have a superpower because they see the world a different way."

The star is also a Cambridge graduate

Opening up about her son's educational journey, the mum-of-two continued: "So my son Cameron grew up, stuck with it, through endless bullying, changed school, developed strategies to learn, worked hard and eventually got a FIRST CLASS DEGREE IN ANIMATION FROM @UWEBristol last summer".

She went on: "Now he is THE MASTER and I couldn't be more proud of him."
