After submitting the intimate snap, which shows the mother-of-one holding the iconic image that was taken in 2010 by photographer David Dawson, Kate said: 'Lucian was an inspiration to me; he had a passion for life and art that will always stay with me.'
Birmingham-born model Erin O'Connor, 37, chose Save the Children doctor Shella Duggal, who she met on a trip to India.
'Dr Duggal works hard to help save the lives of children who are suffering from chronic malnutrition, administrating vital lifesaving medicine and advice to families,' she said.
'She is a remarkable woman who is changing lives within her community every single day. I'm supporting action/2015 because I want 2015 to be the year that world leaders commit to eradicating global poverty and preventing needless child deaths from malnutrition.'
Naomie Harris, 39, choose the Dalai Lama for his 'unwavering commitment to peace and equality for all people'.
She said: 'The idea of collectively being responsible for the well-being of each other – neighbours and strangers alike - is a real inspiration to me and the way I live my life. This year, we all have the opportunity to support this ambition through #action/2015 – let's make it count.'

I'm supporting action/2015 because I believe in the power of people to make the world we live in a better place.'
Actor Tamsin Egerton chose Pakistani activist Malala Yousafzai for her 'bravery and wisdom'.
