Kate Gets Baby-Prep Help from Her Royal Family

Originally posted 05/10/2013 01:00PM

As any parents-to-be can attest, prepping for baby is work that's never done. And, in the latest royal look-a-like installment, faux Kate is no exception!

Photographer Alison Jackson – who previously shot the "royal baby shower" and the newlyweds' "first Christmas" – has thought of everything this time, from the Duchess getting her bump measured by Camilla to helping The Queen paint the nursery. HRH really can rock some coveralls!

The latest spoof series, released by Ladbrokes to launch its royal baby odds in the U.K., also includes Kate's sister Pippa helping choose baby names while Kate noshes on pickles and ice cream.

While it's not the real thing, since Kate (due in July) and Prince William are laying low while Prince Harry's U.S. visit is underway, the pics at least satisfy royal watchers' cravings as well!

Ah, babies. They bring everyone together – even the royal family!

Well, sort of. In the latest scenario imagined by photographer Alison Jackson, who specializes in spoof photos of the royal family, everyone from Pippa Middleton to Camilla to The Queen gather together to fête Duchess Catherine. The faux mom-to-be unwraps onesies that say "Born to Rule" while her royal family – and one of the Queen's beloved corgis! – look on.

Jackson previously arranged a shoot with Catherine and Prince William's lookalikes for a Christmas-themed photo shoot.

And we're not quite sure, but that we're hoping that might actually be Camilla!
