Congratulations to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, who recently announced they are expecting their first child.
The couple are now at the start of a nine-month rollercoaster that, as we know, hasn’t started well with Kate’s severe morning sickness. But because I’ve been on that parental rollercoaster twice, I’d like to give the Duke some advice.
Firstly, at all visits to the midwife, prenatal scans and even during the labour, prepare to feel like a spare part.
Just do whatever you’re asked to do by Kate and the midwives and you’ll be fine.
Also, prepare to be asked your opinions on colours and materials for items such as prams and baby clothing.
I found it best just to nod and agree. Finally, use the remaining months of the pregnancy to practise your tea- making skills as you’ll be making a lot of the stuff for all the well-wishing visitors.
Good news is it’s all worthwhile and once friends and family have gone you’ll get to be daddy. I’ll talk to you about pooey nappies another day.
