Most women have to rely on a book to guide them through their pregnancy, but the Duchess of Cambridge has her very own A-list helper for the next six months: Victoria Beckham.

Victoria’s offered her services to the future Royal mama and is set to advise the 30-year-old Duchess on everything from motherhood to how to dress the all-important Royal bump.

She’s even offered to alter some of her designs to make them suitable as maternity wear.

Kate totally admires Victoria and what she’s achieved.

‘She also wants to be a hands-on, hard-working mum and wants to know how Victoria makes the whole thing look so effortless.’
